History

This park is sometimes referred to as Punt Hill but the origin of the name is not certain. It may once have been 'Punnet Hill', a reference to the many market gardens in the area or perhaps local people used to punt across the large pond which was once on the top of the hill and after which the Pond House public house is named. Another suggestion is that it relates to a ball game where local people used to punt the ball up and down the hill. The nearby Clara Court was the location of the 18th Century Court House, after which the road is named.
