The pools

The two adjoining pools are home to water-lilies and the white-flowered Aponogeton distachyos, as well as to a tiny mosquito-eating species of fish. Recently large clumps of the marginals Pontederia cordata and Typha latifolia (reedmace) have been removed as they threatened to choke the pools. Water lost to evaporation during the summer is not replenished but the pools are left to refill naturally with the winter rains and the run-off from the hillside above them.
