WELCOME TO CLEVELAND POOLS
The Cleveland Pools is the country’s only surviving Georgian lido, hidden away in Bath, on the banks of the River Avon. Once a welcome respite from the heat of the city in the summer, Cleveland Pools was a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike until it closed in 1984. The Cleveland Pools Trust (CPT) is determined to bring these wonderful baths back to life again, with your help.
If restored, Bath would be home to the world’s first naturally treated, heated, outdoor swimming pool, depicted in the images below.
Public Appeal - The future of the Pools lies in the balance. To cover the development phase, Cleveland Pools Trust urgently needs to raise £530,000 in matched funding if we are to secure a Heritage Lottery Fund Stage 2 grant of £3.7M. If our development phase target is met our funding position will be reviewed to determine what additional funds may be required as we enter the delivery phase. Please support our Appeal.
Opening Target Date - April 2019 - if the matched funding target is achieved.

"We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Cleveland Pools Trust, Bath & North East Somerset Council and English Heritage to save these stunning and unusual Georgian open air pools. The re-development plans will see this remarkable piece of sporting heritage opened back up to the people of Bath, providing new facilities for the community and attracting new visitors to the area."
