|The Lido in Grange has stood empty since 1993 and has fallen into decline ever since. |
In 2011, a group of concerned residents formed the ‘Save Grange Lido’ campaign group tosave and restore this iconic building.
Detailed plans have recently been finalised, after engaging a specialist architect to draw upa restoration plan, which they intend to present to South Lakeland District Council shortly.
Opened in 1932, such structures were a common feature across the country. Grange Lido consisted of a salt water pool with diving board and surrounded by a sun deck, changing
rooms and an attendant room.
These ambitious plans would enhance Grange as a visitor attraction and,above all, make
the residents proud of this iconic structure at the far end of Grange promenade.
