    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?

    • Hi Paul,

      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encroachment by Joe Public but it’s often difficult to see other people’s point of view when facilities like this are withdrawn.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.
