The Blue Pool, Furzebrook
The Blue Pool, Furzebrook
From the early 17th century the Blue Pool at Furzebrook was dug for clay to make high quality pottery and clay pipes. The colloidal clay particles in the water disperse light in such a way as to give the pool a greenish-blue colour. In 1985 it was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and many rare species may be found in the locality. The pool itself supports no life forms whatsoever.
