    There's a crusty old website that documents adventures from the scout cabin down the valley from this swim spot in the early 90s. The hut is still owned by the 6th Sheffield (Westbourne) Scout Group. I know about it as I used to be a leader at the group. http://www.alporthut.com/AlportHut/AlportHut.asp

    They make reference to this exact plunge pool.

    "25th May 1992 - Walk up the opposite hill and then down the hidden valley again. Have dinner in the hut and then walk up the valley. Swim in every pool on the way. Very hot. Find an eight foot deep pool, jump in from ten feet up the bank. Walk up to the waterfalls. Jokes about beached whales. Back to the hut for stew. Have a good fire."

    I always like a little bit of history.
