Dedicate a Nature Pond

Sponsor a pond or dedicate a pond as a gift!

Ponds are so important!  They provide a crucial habitat for many invertebrates and amphibians. Yet it is estimated that over half of all ponds in the UK have been lost.

This is why we make as many ponds as we can.

At Bank Woods we have formed ponds in our Ancient Woodland, and on the edge of our newly planted woodland. The biggest is filled by rainwater from the roof of our barn. To create others, we have made ‘leaky dams’ from fallen branches and locally available materials, to hold back streams. This type of pond plays an important role in flood alleviation, and is great for wildlife.

At Sylvan we have dug several ponds over the years. Only one holds water naturally, all year round, and others have required to be lined.  We have lined some and will line others in due course. It is an expensive task!

Dacre Woodlands is home to two of our newer ponds. They have been dug at the bottom of a gentle slope. We have sown wild flower seed around them, which will look fantastic, and be great for pollinators.

Our newest ponds are at Windmill Hill. We hoped they would hold water, but sadly they don’t, and we will be lining them in the summer of 2022.  They lie between newly planted trees and a large clearing.

Whichever pond you sponsor, it will provide valuable habitat, and look beautiful in its natural location for many years to come!

Sponsor a Pond: What you get:

  • A personalised certificate of dedication, sent by email
  • This will include a map showing the location of the pond you have dedicated
  • The satisfaction of supporting precious habitat for many plants, insects, amphibians, birds and mammals – thereby improving biodiversity
  • The joy of knowing you are helping to develop a beautiful pond which will be part of the countryside for many years to come
