This is a modified walk from the Festival. We start outside the Blue Pool and visit the black and green pools finishing with a loop at the iconic Blue Pool if it is not too busy. Good terrain with uneven ground and sometimes mud. There are wonderful views 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.
There is a one way system at Blue Pool to accommodate safe social distancing which will be maintained at all times.
Free parking- entry to Blue Pool included.
