Decoypond Wood near Calvert
Decoypond Wood is an ancient semi-natural wood that lies east of the waste transfer station for the Calvert Landfill Site. This track runs eastwards through wood towards a north-south footpath.

A decoy pond is an artificially created or modified pool of water, usually square or rectangular in outline, with one or more curving ditches called pipes leading off it. Wildfowl were encouraged onto the pond and then lured up the pipes into cylindrical nets. However there is no pond in the vicinity, though there are some small ponds to the west close to Calvert on the other side of the transfer station.
