SJ2505 : Pool on the Leighton Estate

Pool on the Leighton Estate
Pool on the Leighton Estate
The bank to the left of the image is the dam for this pool. It carries a broad track and the ground beyond it drops away steeply.
There are several pools in Leighton Park woods. Various sources suggest they were built and used in association with a water turbine which powered machinery, including a funicular railway, on this high-tech Victorian Estate. I have also read that they fed a decorative cascade near the Hall itself.
