Dew Ponds on Snilesworth Estate

The following photos show the resident gamekeeper topping up the Dew Ponds on the Snilesworth Estate.

A Dew Pond is an artificial pond that is usually created on the tops of hills where a natural supply of surface water is not readily available.

The creation of these Dew Ponds ensures that water is always readily available for all wildlife and livestock, this is especially important during the hot summer months.
