This was the stretch of the town ditches east of the Strand and north of East Street which in the 18th century appears to have been converted into a single large pond, first by the choking off of the water course by the collapse of a tower and then by the continued supply of water from one or other of the Houndwell springs. The character of the district was reshaped by the construction of the Salisbury Canal in the later 18th century. At this period an alternative pond was provided for watering cattle on the east side of the Strand.
