Widlife and fishing.
Near to the Pool Hall fishery, there is another at Shatterford which also encompasses a wildlife sanctury.
Goats, Deer, Llamas can be seen here at the same time as doing a spot of fishing. Some of the wildlife will come right up to you - they will try and steal your bait if you don't watch them carefully!Related to:

The old colliery bridge that carried the aerial ropeway stasions has been put to good use in the Country park as a foot bridge to cross the River Severn to the Severn Valley Railway's Halt (small station), on the other side.
The river is deep and can be treacherous, so do not attempt bathing anywhere along the length of the River Severn or at Pool Hall, even wading is dangerous and is forbidden..
