A few weeks ago I was taking a relaxed stroll around the pond on a Sunday morning when I came across the sight above!
Terry Austen (Fleet Pond Society) and Laura Keighly (Hart Countryside Services) were knee-deep in mud at the small pond near the link bridge (near the station). I was curious what they were up to – they were taking measurements for the platform that is due to be erected there.
As you can imagine, it’s quite hard moving around in the silt. In fact when I was there one of them nearly fell in, so not the easiest job in the world!
However the final consequences will be really good – keep an eye out for developments 🙂
