The many ponds in and around Hartley Wintney are a legacy to the fact that the location of the main village as we know it today was marshland in the medieval ages. Subsequently drovers used the ponds for their cattle for watering and washing.
In addition to those featured below, others include Turnpike Pond, Vicarage Hill Pond, James Farm Pond, Thackhams Lane Pond and the pond at Hunts Common. For some, ‘pond’ maybe something of a misnomer as little if any surface water is evident!
This is a delightful pond with its own duck house tucked away in the corner between Thackhams Lane and the A30 just beyond the traffic lights as you approach the village from Hook.
