Last chance to visit Cleveland Pools before construction work begins
19th September, 2019
This weekend (21 and 22 September) is the last chance for the public to visit the historic Cleveland Pools in Bath before construction work begins in 2020.
The free events, offered as part of the Heritage Open Days programme, will give visitors the opportunity look around the site of the country’s only surviving Georgian lido, hear about its history and the plans for its future.
The lido has sadly been closed since 1984, but as previously reported, Cleveland Pools was successful in its bid for a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to enable the site to be restored and returned to public use. When it reopens it will be the world’s first naturally treated, heated, outdoor swimming pool.
In related news, there are also Heritage Open Day events happening at other lidos around the UK including Broomhill Pool in Ipswich, Sandford Parks Lido in Cheltenham, and at Tooting Bec Lido for the London equivalent, Open House.
