Pembroke Mill Pond looked like this

Until the late fifties until PCC and C21 Mill Pond Commitee finaly ruined it Pembroke Mill Pond and Castle Pond were biologicaly productive . C21 Mill Pond Committee are determined to convert the Mill Pond into Bosherston Lily Ponds. The freshwater supply is inadequate to maintain water quality. The water arises from boulder clay red sandstone with agricultural run off. The Lily Ponds are supplied by ground water throughfractured limestone and run off from carboniferous limestone. The Mill Pond will never be another lily pond it is a scientific impossibility. For 40 years this idiocy has been imposed, net result pollution eutrophication and stink, a public health hazard.

They will never be Bosherston Lily Ponds. £90,000 of your and my money is about to be spent to complete their environmental degradation.
