Lancaster, New Hampshire 03584Martin Meadow Pond map
Martin Meadow Pond is located in the Town of Lancaster, New Hampshire. It is a spring fed Pond, approximately 118 acres of irregular shape, with a major east-west axis of 3 km and a north-south axis of 0.5 km at the widest points. The deepest point is approximately 9 meters. It is surrounded by Mt. Orne, Mt. Pleasant, and Mt. Prospect to the north and east, which form the watershed for the Pond. The Presidential Range of the White Mountains lies at a distance to the southeast. The shoreline is all privately owned and populated by a number of seasonal residences.
The Pond was used by settlers in the early 1700’s as a source for hunting, fishing, and trapping. The Town History book talks about an early gold mine, somewhere in the area, which apparently never flourished.
We have a diverse fish and wildlife population, in and around the Pond. The State stocks the Pond annually with trout. There is a native population of bass, pickerel, and perch.
The pond hosts nesting pairs of Loon, Osprey, and Great Blue Heron. Occasionally, a Bald Eagle is spotted soaring high over the Pond. Beaver reside in a hut in the inlet and are often seen paddling along the shoreline to/from their “work”. Large game animals are often seen in the area: moose, black bear, deer, and wild turkey.
