Collection Pool in
4/26 Barn Wood
Collecting pool. c1750, once linked to Thomas Wright. Limestone. Remains of a
collecting pool or plunge pool in the landscaped grounds of Stoke Park Dower
House (q.v), connected by a channel with the tunnel (q.v) and part of an
organised perambulation in the Park. Remains of three rubble containing
walls, much overgrown at the time of survey (July 1988) but clearly showing
the outlines of a rectangular pool, the most substantial wall to the east
side; that to the south also contains an opening with steps into the pool, the
west side mainly disappeared. An item of little significance in isolation,
but important as part of a planned scheme.
