Another two large pools, Rock Pool and Great Pool are below Island Pool (behind the camera) in the adjacent Himley Park.

Baggeridge Country Park is an attractive area of countryside near Dudley and Wolverhampton. It was formerly the Baggeridge Colliery. Together with part of the original Himley Estate of the Earls of Dudley, the whole site has been transformed into 150 acres of attractive country park, including woodland, lakes, and open grassed areas. It has waymarked walks, cycle trails, and enclosed children's play areas. It is very popular with dog walkers.
