The Hyde lake

Approaching the Hyde house along the drive one comes upon Darkalley Pond, with Upper Pond above the sluice gate. Interestingly, the 1842 Tithe map does not show any ponds; only a brook flowing through a steep-sided valley. However, a map of 1874 clearly shows the ponds and one must conclude that a dam was constructed at sometime between these two dates.
