What effect did it have on the ordinary villagers and their lives? What can you learn about CW manor house?  What role did fish ponds play in providing food for the manor house and villagers? Why did they need to build them? What was needed to make a good site for them? Where did the fish come from and how did they catch them?

14 Cherry Willingham Community School Year 9 projects 2012 Outside visit: You are going out to the pond where you will meet Alex Thornton an archaeologist working for Lincolnshire Historical Environment Records  You will walk to the pond where Alex will talk to you about both some archaeological finds which come from Mr Jones’ garden  She will explain something about their history and how archaeologists work to find such pieces and identify them  Cllr Anne Welburn will also talk about how the pond has been saved and developed so far  At all times you must stay together and with the adults – do not wander off on your own
