Sebbins Pond Dr. Conservation Easement
A conservation easement on approximately 23 acres of town-owned land near Sebbins Pond was granted in 2004 as part of a mitigation requirement by the NH Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) for wetland impacts created by the Target-Lowes development on South River Road.
This easement can be accessed from a trailhead on Sebbins Pond Drive, across from Heather Drive. Indirect access through the Old Bedford Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Bedford (note: the cemetery is not part of the Bedford Land Trust properties). The cemetery land was allocated in 1737, and the oldest grave is dated 1745. There are a number of veterans of the Revolutionary War interred here. Notable names include members of the Goffe, Patten and Rundlett families.
A visit to the Old Bedford Cemetery is a thrill for anyone who is interested in the history of Bedford; link here.
