The lido in Ipswich, aka Broomhill Pool was opened in 1938. It was thought to be one of the best pools of the time. It closed in 2002 to the disdain of many. There is a campaign to save and restore it though.
There are two pools at the Lido – a small child’s pool and a larger & deeper adult pool – they’re both full of crap. The deep end of the adult pool has four diving boards.
On one side of the pool there is a “beach” area, for resting between swims and sunbathing. It was hard to imagine on a cold winter’s morning.
