taken 10 years ago, near to Keyhaven, Hampshire, Great Britain

Balancing pond at the end of Avon Water, Keyhaven
Balancing pond at the end of Avon Water, Keyhaven
The body of water in this photo is Avon Water, which must pass through a sluice beneath the road (off to the left) before it reaches the tidal estuary at Keyhaven. The river enters the sheltered sea behind the shingle bank of Hurst Beach, and winds its way through salt marshes to the Solent.

This is an example of a balancing pond, clearly explained in here: SZ3091 : Balancing pond. The sluice is depicted and described here: SZ3091 : Sluice.

Avon Water itself rises in the heathland to the south of Burley in the New Forest.
