History of Blue Pool

Originally a large clay bowl, dug in the mid 17th century, the clay extracted would be used to make ceramic products, smoking pipes, plates, cups and tea pots. The clay bowl was used until early 20th century, until the bowl flooded, creating Blue Pool.

‘Blue’ Pool

The term ‘Blue’ pool came about through the variously ever changing colours, caused by the very fine clay in the pool which diffracts the light. Giving colours from grey, to green to beautiful blue and turquoise.
