A glimpse of Stanley Pool
A glimpse of Stanley Pool
A glimpse through the trees of Stanley Pool on the Furze Hill estate of Sir Henry Morton Stanley (see SU9455 and SU9356). The pool is named after what is now known as Pool Malebo, a lake between Zaire and the Congo formed by a widening of the Congo River. The African version was a little larger than this one, though it covered over 300 square miles! In spring the pool is covered in water lilies.
