Exhall: Black Bank Pool
Exhall: Black Bank Pool
The pool is shown on the earliest edition of the large scale Ordnance Survey mapping currently available on line, dating from 1887, although to a stranger its origins are not clear. Did it have a function connected with the nearby Exhall Colliery, or the local brickmaking industry, or is it a naturally occurring feature?

Trying to research its origins on the internet it appears that the new residential development on the left was a source of much discontent amongst various parties in the 2000s.
