The Blue Pool is a former clay pit, dug by hand and abandoned in the early 19th century. The Blue Pool gets its name by the deep blue colour of the water in the clay pit due to light diffracting from clay particles in its depths.
The Blue Pool is surrounded by 25 acres of grounds with sandy paths shaded by ancient oaks and woodland for you to enjoy.
