Restore Branch Hill Pond
An application has been made to restore Branch Hill Pond, which was immortalised in several paintings by John Constable.
The pond will be near the junction of Branch Hill and West Heath Road, where the original pond lay until it was filled in in 1890. One of the key aims is to improve biodiversity, while also restoring an important part of Hampstead’s artistic and cultural heritage.
This is all possible thanks to six years of design and planning work by Redington Frognal Association (RedFrog). As well as other grant sources, Frognal & Fitzjohns councillors Andrew Parkinson and Gio Spinella have provided funding to complete the project.
