Walk Description:

Join Sally for a walk at the Blue Pool and on Norden Heath. Good terrain with some uneven ground, tree roots and mud at times. There are wonderful views of the Blue Pool and across the heathland to the Corfe Castle ridges and Poole Harbour.

The Blue Pool at Furzebrook constantly varies in colour. Very fine clay in suspension in the water diffracts the light in different ways producing a spectrum of colour, sometimes green, sometimes turquoise.

Set in a deep clay bowl, steps lead down to the water's edge or up to views of the Purbeck Hills. The Pool is surrounded by 25 acres of heath, woodland and gorse interlaced with sandy paths.

Free parking- entry to Blue Pool included.
