At the southern boundary to the garden there is one of our wildlife ponds. This pond contains a large population of golden minnows as well as frogs, toads and newts. In summer the surface comes alive with iridescent hovering of dragon and damsel flies. Here we have a willow arbour enclosing a seat and a jetty where you may sit and watch this bucolic scene unfold before you.

Adjacent to the Wildlife Pond is an experimental orchard of Peaches, Nectarines, Apricots and Plums.We hope that in the light of climate change, these will prosper and become a productive venture. In time we shall under plant the trees with various ingredients such as spring flowering bulbs and other tough perennials that will survive growing with the competition of meadow grasses. Here too are our bee hives, these are maintained by Paul Metcalf chairman of the Norfolk Beekeepers Association and it is our hope that they will add greatly to the diversity of the garden.
