Smaller pool, hidden away in a little valley up from the Information centre end of the Park and Main Gate. Easy to get to along tarmc path, but a bit more hilly and twisty walk deeper into the darker, spookier side of the woods.
There used to be a Lido here, but it burnt down, which is a shame.
There are fish in there, believe me, and water birds, which you can see for yourself. Again, the sun sets at the far end, opposite a great little bench seat where you can sit and contemplate.
Keeper's Pool was originally built as a fish pond within the mediaeval deer park. The name of the pool suggests that a park keeper's lodge was nearby when the pool was built. The pool dates back to the 15th century and was formed by the damming of a stream.
As it's on a main track-way through the centre of the Park, there're always plenty of passers bye, joggers, walkers, cyclists and the like.
Well recommended for a quick visit.
