Brasside Pond
Brasside Pond
There are two Brasside Ponds; a narrow rib of land separates this northern one from the much larger southern one - OS mapping suggests that the rib of land isn't continuous, but it is. The pools are the result of the flooding of clay extraction workings. This pond is an SSSI and was once managed by Durham Wildlife Trust, but no longer is. It's on land belonging to HM Prison Frankland, the curtain wall of which is just beyond the far trees.
