The Centenary Field boardwalk was sponsored by a generous grant from Thames Water and we are very grateful for their support in this worthwhile venture. The boardwalk will enable visitors to walk to the ponds and sit in peace and quiet and look over the new ponds which are gradually merging with the landscape. The ponds were created by another generous grant from the Community Foundation for Surrey, and the equipment used to excavate the ground was supplied by A Plant, another principal sponsore of Ashtead Rye Meadows Wetlands.
The bank work in the Centenary Field and other fields was funded by the Thomas Flack Trust, The Barnby Trust and Ashtead Rotary.
The aerial photos were taken by Graham Degg of Eyeup Aerial Solutions (www.eyeup.camera) and his assistance with these photos is much appreciated. The originals have much better definition but the file size is too large for uploading to the web site. Please contact Graham direct if you would like your own copies, or of course if you want to avail yourself of his services.
