Historic fishpond sites at Puttenham, with a provisional discussion of Surrey fishponds


Recent fieldwork near Puttenham located a series of historic fishponds and the earthworks of former fishponds. These seem to have been part of a high concentration of such features in this area. What appears to be the oldest set can be identified as mentioned in an early 13th century charter. This article records these sites, and compares them with further fishpond sites in Surrey located during other Area of Special Historical Landscape Value surveys undertaken by the author. A distinctive type of fishpond is identified as associated with former common land in Surrey. These are discussed in relation to the limited research undertaken to date. The author suggests that systematic identification of known historic fishpond sites in Surrey should be undertaken by interested local archaeologists and historians, putting it in line with similar surveys in other counties such as Hampshire.
