Groby (pronounced Grooby) Pool is situated on the southern edge of the Charnwood Forest and is reputedly the largest natural expanse of open water in Leicestershire, covering 38 acres (15 ha). Groby Pool and the surrounding area are of great ecological importance and contain a wide range of plants and animals. In recognition of this, the area was notified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1956. The Pool is owned by Hanson Quarry Products Europe Limited (from whom I was made redundant after 25 years in 2002) and is managed on advice from English Nature, the Government agency that helps to conserve Englands wildlife and natural features.
