Crystal pool

We often describe Dartmoor as holding a rugged beauty and for the most part that remains true and helps us appreciate the harshness of some of the environment. Every now and again Dartmoor offers something new to the eye, something unexpected, perhaps only for a short period in time, just like these crystal clear emerald-tinged pools.
This pool found at Holne Moor SX 675698 is approximately one metre deep and is alive with flora found in only the healthiest of wild water features.
It is in an old tinning excavation and continuously fed with fresh water from the moor it has managed to avoid becoming peat-stained.
