Perilous Pond, an ancient London spring whose overflowing waters formed a pond near Old Street, was a noted place for duck hunting in the 17th century. The pond acquired a dark name because of the many youths that had drowned in it. In 1743, a local jeweller named William Kemp converted this pond into Londonís first outdoor public swimming pool, renaming it the Peerless Pool. Situated behind St. Lukeís hospital, the newly embanked pool was 170 x 108 ft in dimension and from 3-5 feet deep.
