Skelton Pond

Not such an ugly duckling. A brood of eight cygnets with a pair of adults. And very tame, no doubt expecting stale bread. Could Skelton Pond be the fish pond mentioned in a 13th-century document? Or where a witch drowned herself after being chased following a murder? I have my doubts. Witches are so 17th century. Comparing the 1853 and 1893 O.S. maps. It seems to have developed sometime between the two dates possibly from a clay pit connected to a brick and tile yard.
