This was taken from the east side of the pool, looking west.   The pool is  a former clay pit, dug in about 1850, which subsquently filled with water, and  was opened as a tourist attraction in 1934.   The lighting effect is causing by  light refracting off clay particles suspended in the water.

I had walked to the pool from Corfe Castle station, as part of a walk  taking in the pool and Creech Grange Arch (see later).   In hindsight, I wish  I'd spent more time there as there was much more on offer than I'd anticipated  (I also hadn't realised that there were car parking facilities at the site).
