Pond off Fowly Lane
Pond off Fowly Lane
This isn't a hammer pond. Hammer ponds were constructed on streams and dammed in order to provide power at all times; this one doesn't have streams connected to them making them useless for operating the wheels that powered the blast furnaces. The most likely scenario is that both were dug to get something out of the ground, either marl to fertilise nearby fields or to dig up any stray bits of sandstone that lie in the area in order to build something with. They are also next to a highway which would have enabled easy transportation to either fields or nearby settlements.
