Moseley New Pool in Swanshurst Park
Moseley New Pool in Swanshurst Park
Taken in the Autumn, this is a view of the pool in Swanshurst Park, Billesley, Birmingham. On maps it is named Moseley New Pool, and so it was once. A bit of research shows it has been known by other names in the past, including Swanshurst Lady Pool and Grove Pool. Coldbath Brook was dammed for numerous reasons but in this case probably as a fish pond in or before 1758. In its hey day as a municipal park there was a boathouse with boats to hire, a pitch and putt golf course, changing rooms for sports, toilets, cafe, and somewhere to shelter in the rain.
