Pond

I was fascinated by this fresh water pond in Vic le Comte, it was built in a water meadow at the bottom of the village, I'm guessing the purpose was to keep fish. Several small streams had been very deliberately funnelled together in these stone channels to provide the water source.





The flow rate is was quite slow, but enough to keep the water in the pond fresh and clear with absolutely no sign of stagnation even though the pond was clearly unused.

  1. That's an idea, it was quite small though maybe 5m x 2m - like your blog/boat
