Was there any negligence in the way Marsland built and maintained the artificial lakes on his property?

In the case of Nichols v Marsland [1876] 2 Ex. D. 1, the court found no evidence of negligence in the construction or maintenance of the artificial lakes by Marsland. The lakes were built without any fault or negligence on his part, following proper procedures and legal requirements. Therefore, according to the judgment, Marsland had not been negligent in how he built or maintained the lakes on his property.
