July 2019 to match the 1985 photos

This page shows thumbnails for some photographs that we have taken recently (July 2019) following the pond regeneration works of last year.  We have tried to match as far as possible these new photos with those of 1985 from Rushmoor Borough Council.  The pond area especially has shown a remarkable recovery from its brush with two very large diggers and all the tree felling, upwards of a dozen new species have been found in the area.

These photos from 2019, some thirty four years on from the 1985 originals and a year after the July 2018 regeneration works show the park recovering and looking much like the original photos.
