Dewpond - Horam
Dewpond - Horam
A Dew pond is an artificial pond usually sited on the top of a hill, intended for watering livestock. Dew ponds are used in areas where a natural supply of surface water may not be readily available.

They are usually shallow, saucer-shaped and lined with puddled clay, chalk or marl on an insulating straw layer over a bottom layer of chalk or lime.

Despite the name, their primary source of water is believed to be rainfall rather than dew or mist.
