TQ8586 : Pond in Chalkwell Park

taken 2 months ago, near to Leigh-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea, Great Britain

Pond in Chalkwell Park
Pond in Chalkwell Park
Mapped in Victorian times as Chalkwellhall Well, it looks more like a spring than a well. Whether it still springs naturally is not clear, but any outflow appears to be covered over now. It was presumably in the grounds of Chalkwell Hall, which still exists as a public building in a public park. Whether this was the chalk well of Chalkwell is also not clear. Actual chalk is a long way down here, requiring a deep borehole.
