Some New Experiences on The Quay at Poole in Dorset
It is some time since I walked around the Old Harbour in Poole. I discovered some interesting changes. I had heard that the old Poole Pottery had closed so I was delighted to find that it has been replaced by a the Poole Pottery Studio which has a large collection of Poole pottery on display. Demonstrations in throwing pots take place, pottery painting is available and there is a good selection of Poole pottery for sale here.
A little further around the harbour is the Birds of Poole Harbour centre. Its purpose is to introduce its visitors to the diverse bird life that inhabits Poole Harbour and its environs and offering bird boat trips. The information boards and inter-active displays are supplemented by knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers.
Titan Leathercraft sells beautiful hand-crafted leather goods and visitors can watch them being made in the open workshop. A variety of courses are also available for anyone interested in making their own leather goods.
