The southern-most end of the reserve contains Paul’s Pond, a fish pond belonging to the Cookridge Hall estate, which was dug in the 1820s by Richard Wormald to provide fish and ice to the kitchens, but actually named after William Paul who bought the estate in 1890. The pond is popular with waterfowl, particularly in the winter and if you’re very lucky, kingfisher may also be seen.???

This is a circular walk
Pauline is still not fit enough to lead the walk so I will stand in for her. May not be exactly the same walk but will be similar & take in Pauls Pond
On both the no 1 & X84 bus route. On the no 1 get off at the first stop after the bus turns left into Holt Lane right by The Lawnswood Arms. If on the X84 ring the bell as soon as you see the Lawnswood Arms on your left, if you miss it the next stop is Golden Acre park !!! The no1 is the safer option
