9. Long Pond and the Eel

About 25 years ago, at Long Pond in Oak and Ash Wood, a small group of volunteers was clearing up litter and fallen logs. One of the ladies picked up what she thought was an old stick. It was an eel that had buried itself in the mud. Her scream could have been heard for miles.
