08 Dec Falmer Pond
The Sussex Village of Falmer is located around Falmer Pond, which is where historians believe the name ‘Falmer’ originates. During the Saxon era, when the village was first established, Falmer was referred to as ‘Fallows Mere’, meaning ‘dark pool’ after the large centrally located pond.
Falmer Pond is a hub of village life, with people meeting up to enjoy the views, feed the ducks or start their walk through the downs. The pond is home to a family of geese, which were born and raised in Falmer Court, and released into the pond to continue their lives in the wild. The pond is also home to a large number of different specimen of fish – including some beautiful large Carp.
We love to end our day strolling through the village around the pond, watching the wildlife and enjoying the country air.
