Chesham Bois: Bricky Pond
Chesham Bois: Bricky Pond
Thought to have originally been a clay pit for use in the manufacture of bricks, it dates back to at least 1735 as it was recorded on a 1736 map, but not on one produced in 1716. It is on the north side of Chesham Bois Common by North Road, and was restored during 1996/7 by the Chesham Bois Restoration Group. It is fed by surface water and it is probable that its reduction in size compared to its extents shown in older photographs is due to a drop in the general level of the water table caused by generally dwindling amounts of rainfall and the encroachment of trees around its edges taking up the water.
