Description

Silent Pool

Silent Pool is just down the road (A25) from Newlands Corner near to the village of Albury. The water of Silent Pool is pure and clear coming straight from a spring in a chalk landscape and the temperature of the water remains at 10 or 11 degrees all year round.It gets it's name from the quiet and eerie atmosphere that is found there, in fact it is said to be haunted. Emma , thedaughter of a woodcutter liked to swim naked in the Silent Pool but when a horseman came near once she screamed as she swam to the deeper part of the pond. Her brother came to her cries but it was the following morning that the woodcutter found both the bodies of his children AND the hat of the horseman lost in his flight- it bore the crest of Prince John, later to become the infamous King John.
