Hi, I have just recently visited this site as I thought I would rekindle some of my youth as I use to come here as a child some 50+ years ago, only to find it all overgrown and unused how sad, what happened?
Unfortunately, it seems that the new landowner had issues with those sorts of activities and pulled the plug a few years ago. Perhaps he had good reason for it: my impression was that he didn’t like the encroachment by Joe Public but it’s often difficult to see other people’s point of view when facilities like this are withdrawn. It’s a real shame because although I didn’t live close enough to it myself, our kids were able to have some great times there in the mid-nineties. For our wellbeing as humans we should be ADDING to sites like these but that’s never going to be the case is it? RIP Whorlton Lido.
