Monks Pond, The Begwns
According to the The National Trust, the dam that enlarged the original pond was probably constructed during the first half of the 20th Century. The pond itself is host to a wide range of dragonfly species and the Begwns Common as a whole is rich in upland archaeology, including Bronze Age burial cairns, standing stones, a deserted medieval village, and various track-ways and quarries dating from the last 250-300 years.
