There may have been a pool on this site already in the 17th century. The current one is around 25 yards in length and is one of the few Cambridge college pools. Although located in the Fellows' Garden, junior members of the college are allowed to use the pool at certain times. The rather minimal changing hut at the one end dates from around the same era as the pool.

The pool is situated just over a tall wall from the Drummer Street bus station, so it is not particularly tranquil.
