abandoned outdoor swimming pool Forgotten Outdoor Swimming Pool at Tynemouth, Northern England

This abandoned outdoor swimming pool at Sharpness Point in Tynemouth, northern England, is both classic example of a bygone era  and symbol of Britain’s all-too-often rundown seaside resorts. While cheap package holidays are generally blamed for the decline of seaside resorts across the UK, increased health and safety measures and a reluctance on the part of local councils to spend money on upgrading existing – often historic – facilities have caused many such pools and lidos to fall into abandonment. Their 21st century remains are nostalgic reminders of our recent past.
