taken 12 years ago, near to Mannings Heath, West Sussex, Great Britain

Pond adjacent to A281 (Brighton Road) at Birchen Bridge, West Sussex.
Pond adjacent to A281 (Brighton Road) at Birchen Bridge, West Sussex.
A long thin man-made ribbon pond extending to 700m E of the dam (Birchen Bridge). In the foreground of the view is a weir used to control the maximum level of the water. This pond is characteristic of the many "Hammer Ponds" that are found in the W end of the High Weald. Other examples are at TQ2229 and TQ2129. View taken from close to the public road, at the S end of the dam, looking NE. A thin layer of ice on top of the water does not prevent good reflections of the trees on the other side of the pond.
