Beamond End

Beamond End is a small hamlet linked by footpaths across farmland. In the middle of the hamlet is a sizeable freshwater pond fronting the lane. Its presence was clearly marked on a map of the Manor of Beamond End in 1740. It probably originated as a farm pond and is similar to the "dew pond" six of which used to be in Holmer Green. In 1854 the Little Missenden Enclosure Award set out the pond as a public pond and animals could be watered there.

The name ‘Beamond’ is derived from the old French ‘Beau mont’ meaning ‘beautiful hill’.
