Old Hall Pond in Thorndon Country Park South
Thorndon Country Park is divided into Thorndon Park North, with the Countryside Centre, and Thorndon Park South. These areas are linked by the 'Old Park', which is owned by the Woodland Trust, and 'Old Thorndon Pasture', which is owned by Essex County Council.

The most important habitat in Thorndon Country Park is the ancient deer park area dating back to the 15th century which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The design of the parkland was reorganised in the late 18th century by 'Capability' Brown, obscuring effects of the French landscape designer, Bourginion. Other parts of the park include ancient woodland, plantations of both broad leaved and coniferous species, some grassland and three small lakes.

This is at the far southern end of Thorndon Country Park South within the Old Deer Park and is close to the remains of Old Thorndon Hall.
