Not only is it a very pleasant place to visit but there’s a lot of history associated with Himley Hall, Staffordshire, which makes it even more interesting.
One of the lesser-known facts is that there’s a grade 2 listed bridge in the grounds.
Thousands of people walk past it every week but how many realise that the bridge between Rock Pool and Island Pool is recognised in this way.
The bridge itself goes back to the early 19th century and is constructed of rusticated stone and a single arch.
A road passes over the bridge to the nearby farm and there’s a brook beneath it that flows through several pools, as it makes it way from Baggeridge.
