Research into the Lake sediments has confirmed that Groby (pronounced Grooby) Pool is of relatively recent origin. It may have resulted from the damming of Slate Brook in the 12th/13th century by the monks from Leicester abbey. One theory is that it dates back to Roman times perhaps a clay pit for Roman pottery?
Hanson allows access to the roadside banks, adjacent to the Newtown Linford/Groby Road. Previous owners of the Pool House, Groby Pool and the surrounding grounds have retained the secluded nature of the area by allowing only limited access.
