The Old Yachting Pond, Tooting Graveney Common
The Old Yachting Pond, Tooting Graveney Common
Sometime around 1990, The Old Yachting Pond was enlarged and planted with a variety of wetland species. A boardwalk was added around the edge, and the whole was quite a transformation from its rather formal predecessor. Towards the end of the dry spell in summer 2010, there was no sign of any water and the boardwalk was left high and dry - see LinkExternal link At the end of the summer of 2014 seen here, there was some water but it was very far from filling up to the edge of the boardwalk seen in the earlier photograph.
