Grange Over Sands Lido - List Entry
Description"...A seaside salt-water lido constructed in 1932 to designs by the Council Surveyor Bernard Smith. It is complete with all key ancillary buildings including an entrance block with upper viewing gallery and attached sun decks, detached changing wings, terraces, pump house, paddling pool and stepped diving stage. The slide and diving boards have been removed. The lido closed in c. 1993.
Grange over Sands Lido constructed in 1932 is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Completeness: as a complete example of a 1930s lido with the survival of all key ancillary buildings and structures
* Pool: for the unusually shaped pool, designed for multiple uses and which retains its original stepped diving stage.
* Historic: as an evocative reminder of the former popularity of sea-side towns such as Grange over Sands and the inter-war cult of fresh air, fitness and mass leisure.....
