Our dew ponds are being restored

September 2019

We are currently working with the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group to identify and restore old dew ponds on the farm. Dew ponds are artificial ponds sited on the top of a hill and intended for watering livestock. Dew ponds are usually used where a natural supply of surface water may not be readily available. We are currently restoring two ponds on the farm, using clay lining and local Cotswold stone. These will provide a sustainable source of water for our livestock and for wildlife.
