Near the village of Fritham in the New Forest you can find Eyeworth Pond. Latchmore Brook was dammed in 1871 to supply water to the nearby Schultze Gunpowder Factory, which was based around Eyeworth Lodge and began making powder for sporting guns in 1859. Ten years later Edward Schultze took charge of the factory and began production of smokeless gunpowder on a large scale, employing around 100 people at the height of production. The factory closed in 1921 but the pond remains. The woodland around the pond is good for small birds.
