Quarry Pool 8858

This is the quarry pool at Hengustbury Head at the Eastern end of Bournemouth.

 

The pool is found in what was once an ironstone quarry on the headland, and was formed when a damn was built at the far end to prevent silt washing out onto the saltmarsh of Christchurch Harbour, which you can just make out in the distance.
