Walk beside Leg of Mutton Pond

A relatively lesser-known pond on the West side of Hampstead Heath, Leg of Mutton Pond is formed from one of the tributaries of the River Brent, possibly dammed in the early 19th century as part of a plan to employ poor people in the area.

It is a quiet spot, largely surrounded by trees and popular with wildfowl and the odd passer-by, but perfect to stop by for some tranquility on a summers' evening.
