Ponds were the life-blood of a village. They were not only part of the field drainage system but a place for animals to drink, children to play and the local blacksmiths to cool down wagon tyres. At the time the Tithe Map was drawn up in 1847 there were some twenty ponds of varying sizes in Froyle. In the 21st century there is only one real pond left, although a few of the old ones appear, like ghosts, after spells of heavy rain.
