TQ1234 : Roman pond?

Roman pond?
Roman pond?
A Roman road ran north-west from a junction with Stane Street at Rowhook. It passed just to the right of a pond hidden under this tree in the middle of a field. Ponds or pits by Roman roads are frequent, usually a result of winning stone for road construction. In this case there should be no suitable roadstone here, being in the Weald Clay some way above any hard stone strata. Remarkably, the pond still had a fair amount of water in it, despite being at nearly the highest point in the area.
