Abbots Wood/Buckshaft woods (General)

A lad named Eric Evan Embling drowned in what was named, as I remember, Yellowstone Pond in 1920. This may not be the pond described in the original post as this is a small, oval, brick lined pond used to collect water which was piped to the greenhouses at Abbotswood House and is situated up the track on the Cinderford side of what were the grounds of the Abbots House.

It is, however, a known drowning incident in the general area.
