HER Description

Interwar lido style open air pool. Much neglected. Opened 30 May 1925 arising from a campaign since the turn of the century following the annual loss of life amongst Victorian and Edwardian trippers unused to the cold and currents of the North Sea. Originally there were no dressing rooms or facilities. The pavilion was opened on 2 July 1927. Users entered through a turnstile. In 1996 the pool was filled in to create a rock pool but is largely disused.

NEHL - There are campaigns to reopen the pool, having received backing from local figures. See @TynemouthPool on Twitter
