Wheatfield Balance Pond

Wheatfield balance pond is a Thames Water feature designed to take excess surface water from the surrounding estate roads and properties. Over the years this pond has been allowed to grow in an unchecked way. This unchecked growth has choked the life out of the area and the group is working to keep the growth under control in a way that encourages the natural wildlife to flourish. The main initiative in this area is to control the willow invasion in a way that allows more light in and so encourages wildlife to flourish.
