Geocache Description:

The cache is a plastic container large enough for Geocoins and small Travel Bugs. Please keep it well covered.

Normandy Pond has been documented from at least the middle of the 17th Century. John Rocque surveyed this area during the next century and recorded its presence on his map dated 1762. The much earlier map of Norden in 1607 fails to mention it. If Normandy Pond didn't exist at that time then its possible that it arose as a result of sand extraction during the early part of the 17th century.

By 1985 the area was just an overgrown marsh and few were aware that there ever had been a pond in the woods. A photo taken in 1908 however proved that there was a pond, and this spurred on the local community to restore it over the next few years.

In 1990 the Normandy Pond Project won first place in the Community category of the inaugural National Pondwatch Award Scheme (organised by the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust and sponsored by the Shell Better Britain Campaign).
