Fisher's Pond itself is an artificial lake held back by an earth dam at one end and adjacent to Marwell Zoo. The pond was constructed to allow the then Bishop of Winchester to have fish supplied to his table, especially in winter . There are two public houses in the hamlet; The New Queens Head and The Fisher's Pond (Formally The Fisher's Pond cafe). The pond is now used as a fish farm mainly for carp. In former times there was a swimming pool at one side of the pond, the remains of which can still be seen to this day.
