Blue Pool, The in Dorset

This page is about Blue Pool, The near Wareham, Dorset

Situated between Wareham and Corfe Castle, this Dorset attraction could at times be Canadian or even Norwegian, due to the dramatic changes it goes through as the seasons pass. The Blue Pool, situated in Furzebrook opened in 1935 and has attracted many many visitors since. Due to the fact that it was once a clay pit, it retains tiny parts of clay in the water, which refract the light entering the Pool, which regularly changes the way it looks, Sometimes over the space of one or two minutes. It has been described as emerald green, turquoise and others.

As well as the main attraction - The Pool. You will find a museum celebrating the history of clay mining in the area, as well as a gift shop and tea rooms, which themselves hold some amount of history - Again built in 1935, from sand and lime bricks, finished with a Canadian Ceder wood roof, the building fits in very well with its surroundings, speaking of which the surrounding woodland walkways are well worth some time spent.

Dogs are most welcome throughout the Blue Pool Attractions, however they must be on a lead at all times.
