Ice Age Ponds

In Herefordshire we have some ponds that are just a bit special - they were created during the last Ice Age... and still exist today!

Find out more about our project to conserve Herefordshire's Ice Age Ponds

Create a Pond - big or small!

Below are guides to creating ponds at home. If you are planning to create a larger pond or have a large pond that you plan to restore and would like some advice, as an individual or as a community group, please get in touch with Sarah King at s.king@herefordshirewt.co.uk .
