YES you are right it really is White Mere Pool. The land around there was very wet and the road building Romans had to build the Wrekendyle road a bit higher using timbers.(The stretch from The Green to the Traffic Lights at the Golf course) Even today you can see that the road is higher than the surrounds. Our Bedeburn had its source at Wardley area and the Ellisons utilised it to fill our 4 lakes. The source of the River Don is up the bank towards Wrekenton. Where does all the water come from though?
