15 October 2011: Old Tree in Springett's Wood

Springett's Wood

Springett's Wood, is one of the more hidden corners of Hampstead Heath. (It is easy to find, however, if you keep an eye open for the radio mast–it is right next to it.) It is the old orchard of St Columba's Hospital, and has several old fruit trees.

13 October 2011: Hampstead Ponds

Hampstead Ponds

If you're wondering what happened yesterday–there had been a problem with my camera, so there was nothing to post. Today's picture is what would have been yesterday's one: Hampstead No 2 Pond with the Mixed Bathing Pond beyond, seen from the path that leads to South Hill Park.

24 September 2011: Iron Pan Ponds

Sandy Heath Ponds

The Iron Pan Ponds are small ponds on Sandy Heath, which are not fed by springs, but by rainwater. They exist on this part of the Heath because of an indurated sandstone layer known as iron pan, from which they take their name.
