The lake, The Vyne It is unclear exactly when the lake was formed, although it would have been some time after the original Tudor house was established; there is a reference to a long pond in 1743 which was subsequently enlarged. Today it is home to a variety of waterfowl, including a fine flock of canada geese. The Vyne is a National Trust property.
