Silent Pool, near Shere
Silent Pool, near Shere
A spring line pool at the foot of the North Downs. It gets its name supposedly from the murder here of a young girl by King John. Since then, no birds are said to sing here. The pool has only dried out once due to drought in the last 30 years at least. The building is a thatched boathouse.
