This was once the site of a pit used by the Randlay Brickworks to provide clay for the making of their distinctive 'blood-red' bricks.
Bricks from the Randlay works were used to build the Stirchley Chimney. At the bottom of the deep pool are the remains of the brickworks buildings and machinery. The suspension of the clay particles in the water gives the pool its deep blue colour and hence its name.
