Tucker's Pool

Beautiful blue-green water in the sunshine

Tucker's Pool is a less well known part of the gorge, being off the main route it can be quieter, a place to sit awhile and take in the peaceful natural surroundings.

Up stream from the roar of Devil's Cauldron and the ravine the river is calmer and the atmosphere brighter. The reason this section of the river is called Tucker's Pool is unknown however the river does stand still in this part of the gorge.

Take the time to find this secret spot and if you’re patient you may see the brown trout swimming against the current or catch a fleeting glimpse of a kingfisher patrolling its territory. Keep a look out also for buzzards soaring high above the gorge or you might just hear their plaintive mewing call.
