Cleveland Pools is the country’s only surviving Georgian lido, hidden away in Bath, on the banks of the River Avon. Once a welcome respite from the heat of the city in the summer, Cleveland Pools was a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike until it closed in 1984. The Cleveland Pools Trust (CPT) is working hard to bring these wonderful baths back to life with the help of a grant from the National Lottery.
When restored, Bath will be home to the world’s first naturally treated, heated, outdoor swimming pool. Work on the restoration should start towards the end of 2019 with the pool reopening for swimming in spring 2021. Come and hear all about the history of the pool and the plans for restoration in the next Bygone Days Talk organised by Radstock Museum’s volunteers.
Sally Helvey, Trustee of Cleveland Pools, will be at the Somer Centre on Tuesday 2nd April at 7:30pm to give an illustrated talk on the history of the baths and the plans for the future of this hidden gem.
