Poole, Dorset’s largest town, lies five miles to the west of Bournemouth.  Poole’s old harbour area is full of historic interest, with many fine buildings, including the old Guildhall, Scaplen’s Court and Town Cellars, now museums, the Customs House and the Lifeboat museum. The famous Poole Pottery is also worth a visit. The port’s development dates back to the thirteenth century but today Poole’s large natural harbour is used mainly by pleasure craft. Poole is a major tourist resort, offering visitors fine sandy beaches and has grown into a busy industrial and commercial centre with a population of over 100,000. The map below shows the town of Poole as it was in the mid twentieth century. Click on a selected area of the map below to see an enlargement.
