Pole Bank Pond Renovation

I first showed you Pole Bank Pond in 2008.

It doesn't look as lovely now as it did then having been dredged of accumulated mud as part of a renovation effort.

Once the home of prominent mill-owners, the Ashton family, Pole Bank Hall is now a private nursing home. The grounds, however are a public open space.

A vintage view of Pole Bank Hall can be found on Old Hyde.

On my personal blog, this week's Friday Bench is one that overlooks the pond.

Looks like they have their work cut out there Gerald!

I didn't know the grounds were open to the public. Might have a wander over when the summer arrives.
