Normandy Pond
Normandy Pond
The pond is on Normandy Common and is a SNCI (Site of Nature Conservation Importance). It is probably not natural and was possibly dug for sand extraction in the eighteenth century. It was apparently in a very overgrown state by the mid-1980s when local residents, under the umbrella of Normandy Parish Council, volunteered to restore it. Read here LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) for the full story of the restoration.

The photograph was taken late in the afternoon of a day during a period of weather with continual clear skies resulting in cold nights and comparatively warm days for February. Despite the ambient temperature of around 8 Centigrade at the time, the pond had not unfrozen at all during the day.
