School Pond 1888
This hand tinted slide of children skating on School pond taken in 1888 has to be one of our favourite pictures of Froyle (to find out more about these slides, either follow Binsted Slides from Contents, or the menu item at the bottom of the page). The map below shows the location of the pond - the large building in the background is most likely part of Heath’s Farm, possibly Fern Cottage.

This is the actual pond area in 1961 with Fern Cottage in the background. The pond still fills today after heavy rain.
