The old swimming pool at Lanhydrock

August 18, 2015

Brave enough?

The gardens and park at Lanhydrock (click here) are superb. But the man on the gate struggled to remember any famous associations with the house itself; Gladstone planted a tree and there were mutterings about Poldark, but that was it. So I skipped the house and, late in the day, discovered this.

A tiny stream flows though and the water looks clean, albeit dark and weedy. I wasn’t concerned by the sign, rather the reverse, but I had no swimmers, young people were around, and while I contemplated it started to rain, and my courage failed me. I’m kicking myself, but it’s there for another day.
