4/6 Skating pond lining
and tank approx 150 m
to north-north-west of


Skating pond lining and tank. c1900. For the Dawnays of Beningbrough Hall. Stone.
Irregular square-ended gourd-shaped plan. Shallow stone lining to pond with iron-
grille over drain in bottom on south side. Outside the pond next to this drain is a
stone slab covering a tank. The plan of the pond is presumably of a design to
enable skaters to move in a figure of 8. Water was pumped up from the River Ouse by
means of a pump house (q.v.). It was constructed between the surveys taken for the
1893 and 1907 Ordnance Survey maps. A second skating pond to the south-west of the
hall is now partly infilled.
