Big Pool ( more details)


Big Pool Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information

   



Originally this had been a low-lying area beside the river. When the canal was built, the towpath berm was built quite high but no effort was made to build a berm for the land side of the canal. Instead the low area between the towpath berm and the higher ground on the right was allowed to fill with water when the canal was filled. That created the long, narrow lake known as Big Pool.
