Longthorpe Village Pond

Not the results of a spell of wet weather but a bona-fide village pond …… in the street !

Being just up the road from the horse-drawn bus terminus at the Fox & Hounds, the pond was regularly used to clean the hooves of horses and the wheels of the carriages they pulled.

The pathway to Longthorpe Tower heads off to the right, just this side of the cottage. The lower image dates to around 1905.
