Full Description

William Senior's map of the Meynell Langley estate in 1640 shows a pond to the west of Lodge Farm. The dam is clearly depicted, as is what appears to be a promontory of some sort extending out from the dam into the middle of the pond. (1) The pond was no longer present by the 1880s, as it is not shown on the 1st ed. 25" OS map. By that date a road had been constructed across the former dam. (2)
