This lovely peaceful pond is near Seckington Cross. The big pond, with its weeping willow and plenty of marginal plants, has ducks and fish. It's a bit green, probably because of the ducks and fish adding nutrients to the water, and may be better for plants than invertebrates.

The pretty pond in the garden is much clearer and had a dragonfly casing on a plant, showing at least 1 species breeds there. This smaller pond also has a few fish.
