Meadow Pond

This pond was created by local contractors Barry Day & Sons on behalf of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust in spring 2023 by excavating an old ponds which had been filled in many years (we think about 30) ago.

See more information and photos here.

It has filled up nicely from goundwater and rainwater over the winter 2023-2024.

We are hoping it will provide a good breeding place for Great Crested Newts.

The initial overall conclusion of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust 2024 survey was that the pond is in “excellent condition”
