Ponds

The Parish Council owns and maintains three ponds within the parish. With the new housing developments being completed over the next few years, the Council will be adopting additional pond areas. They are a beautiful addition to Haddenham and are home to a number of different water fowl.

We completely understand the pleasure that residents gain from feeding the ducks, especially amongst our younger parishioners. We would like to ask residents not to feed bread as it attracts vermin but to feed corn, berries etc, which is more nutritious for the ducks.
