TQ1972 : Pond Slade, Richmond Park

near to Ham, Richmond Upon Thames, Great Britain

Pond Slade, Richmond Park
Pond Slade, Richmond Park
Richmond Park's SSSI status came about in recognition of two principal features: its lowland acid grassland and its veteran trees. Pond Slade, lying south-west of the Pen Ponds, is one of the Park's most extensive areas of acid grassland.

In this view I am sighting along a ditch towards the birches of Pond Plantation - beyond which are the Ponds. Much drainage work was carried out here during the 19th century. Before that - and even more so, before the creation of the Pen Ponds in the 18th century - this area must have been very much wetter.

Richmond Park is a National Nature Reserve.
