English: Eyeworth Pond is a pond located near Fritham in the New Forest, in Hampshire, England. The pond was created in the 1860s by damming Latchmore Brook, with the purpose of supplying water to a nearby gunpowder factory. The factory closed in the 1920s but the pond remains to this day. A small population of the introduced Mandarin duck is resident on the pond, which is surrounded by ancient woodland.
