Sanderstead Pond

Introduction

Sanderstead Pond is a small remnant of the old village green and is almost certainly fed by rain water rather than a spring, the water level fluctuating throughout the year. In 1799 the local Squire enclosed the village green into his parkland and its layout has little changed since the mid C19th.
