14/106 Fishpond retaining walls
- approximately 150 metres to-
south east of West Molland Barton
Fishpond retaining walls. Probably early C18. Coursed stone rubble, parts laid
vertically and unmortared.
Series of 3 irregularly-shaped fishponds divided by dams, below a spring in the
valley to south-east of West Molland Barton (q.v.).
Unmortared retaining walls to ponds and mortared rubble retaining wall to bank behind
ponds. One pond has small island. Although the retaining walls probably only date
back to the C18 it is likely that the fishponds are much earlier possibly dating back
to the C16.
