Rivers & Fishponds

 

Rivers and fish ponds were important resources, used for defence or fishing, or both.

A significant part of Magna Carta is taken up with concerns about fish weirs.

Many castles and manor houses (and monasteries) had nearby fish ponds. If a natural pond did not exist then one could be built.
