Ornamental lake at RMA Sandhurst
Ornamental lake at RMA Sandhurst, taken 7 years ago
When the original Royal Military College building, now Old College, was completed in 1812 on 450 acres of scrubland and sandy woodland at Camberley, an existing water-mill was pulled down and its mill pond enlarged and excavated to form this lake. It is fed by the Wishstream, a tributary of the Blackwater river. Now populated by wild duck, grebes, herons and other wild fowl, the lake makes an attractive feature on the Sandhurst estate in front of SU8560 : Old College at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst
