Jubilee Pool – Saved!

Retired architect John Clarke formed the Jubilee Pool Committee, which later became the Friends of Jubilee Pool, and spent many years working tirelessly to ensure the pool survived. Largely due to this work, in 1993, a time when many lidos across the UK were being permanently closed, the pool was awarded Grade II listing by Historic England. (Photo Ref: MM-0298)

The old swimming baths within the Café Marina (Contributed by Wendy Hosken)

This photo of the old baths within the Café Marina on the promenade dates from before the opening of the Jubilee Pool. It features Omar Pascoe, standing next to the slide. We think it’s likely to date from the 1920’s or the early 1930’s. Does anyone know? (Photo Ref: WH-0055)
