You are hereDozmary Pool
Dozmary Pool is associated with many legends. It is suspected of being the body of water into which Sir Bedivere threw Excalibur after King Arthur was mortally wounded. The pool is also said to be a haunt of the Lady of the Lake, guardian of Excalibur. It is also said to be bottomless and to have a tunnel connecting it to the sea.
Dozmary pool the name of which means 'drop of sea', dried up in the year 1869 quashing any notions of truth to the legend. Neolithic arrowheads were found in the dried pools bed.
The site is also linked with local legends of Jan Tregeagle who was charged with emptying the pool with a broken limpet shell.
Directions: The pool is reached off a minor road from the A30 near the Jamaica Inn from Bolventor.
