Carshalton Ponds are part of the Carshalton Village Conservation Area and are one of the most attractive areas of South West London. Not of natural origin, the site of the present Lower Pond seems to have been wet ground, which was crossed by small streams running from a line of springs in front of the Church and thought to have been created in the 1730's for local Thomas Scawen. The Upper Pond in front of the 'chalk and flint' Honeywood building is said to have been made in the 1630s for the Earl of Arundel.
The ponds are surrounded by attractive and interesting buildings including Honeywood Heritage Centre and the Water Tower.
