Chagford's Swimming Pool Opens for the Season

Chagford's Swimming Pool Opens for the Season


Opened in 1934, Chagford Swimming Pool was dug by hand by
local residents on land entrusted to the village by the Hayter-Hames
family.  It is the largest freshwater swimming pool in the south west of
England and is a very special spot to visit.  The pool is fed
by the mill leat, a small stream off the main river, which was originally
diverted to power the waterwheel at Rushford farm.  




Shopping and Eating Out is always a huge treat in the
spectacular Stannary Town of Chagford.  A
wealth of stylish independent shops clusters around the town square with its
famous octagonal market house. A great place for the hungry foodie there are
some superb pubs, cafes and eateries making a trip here the perfect day out.
