Save Grange Lido

  • Description

    "Grange Lido is a very rare Art Deco swimming pool in a spectacular position in South Lakes looking over Morecambe Bay. The Lido is a much loved community asset which has a place in the hearts of people locally and across the country. Since closure over 25 years ago, it has been waiting to be re-opened and now needs some considerable TLC. We are progressing imaginative proposals to transform it into a vibrant community owned leisure facility with a restored 50m pool at its heart. .......Grange Lido is an iconic Art Deco gem and it is the only surviving seaside lido in the North West and one of just 5 in England. Dating from 1932, the Lido is an important heritage asset and, thanks to the efforts of Save Grange Lido, is now grade II listed. It is much loved and prized by local people and folk further afield who overwhelmingly want to see it fully restored with a swimming pool. The Lido has now been closed for a generation...."
