eBay and Fleet Pond Boathouse

Vicki Jull, who is on the Committee of Fleet Pond Society, is also very keen on the history of Fleet and environs. Out of curiosity, Vicki searched eBay recently to see if there was anything available related to Fleet Pond – quite a remote possibility you might have thought!

However a postcard with a picture of the old boathouse came up, which was about 100 years old! The image above is a scan from this (purchased) postcard. The original boathouse has long since disappeared although a Boathouse Corner can still be seen on the map (see About above).

Up until the 1930’s, Fleet Pond had a fine sandy beach on the east side that was a favourite spot for picnics and swimming (and associated boating).
