The best definition of a pond I have read, from a fishing perspective, is more-or-less: "a water where it is possible to cast, from one bank to the other, without getting your tackle wet, from all of the banks."
You'll notice that some of the waters called "ponds" on this site are not included, as they are way bigger than that.
Having said that, I've discovered there are formal definitions for ponds and lakes. It's like this:
So a pond can be many acres e.g. - Frencham pond. A lake can be small as you like, as long as it's got an inlet and outlet supply. I'm indebted to one of my (very) few correspondents for that information. So this page has some stuff on some of the ponds I've fished, despite the fact "there are no fish in them"...

In the above list, Fisher's Pond and Bucklebury Ponds are 'technically' lakes.
Among other waters around this site, Luckfield Lake is technically a pond. 'Pete's Ponds' are 'technically' lakes. Meadow Lake is 'technically' a pond. And so on...
You may, if you're the sort of person to wonder about stuff, be thinking "Why is there a whole web-page here with a few links to ponds?" Good question. When the site was made, there was stuff on this page about these ponds. Then the whole site went 'chronological' and it will in 2017 go 'databasey'. So this a sort of place-holder. Probably.
