The lido was built on the site of former tennis courts by female volunteers in 1963 and opened a year later

It had a variety of pools to suit all levels of swimming abilities, including one for diving and a smaller pool for younger children, and was extremely popular until its closure in August 1984.

Entrance was subsidised by Clipstone Colliery Miners’ Welfare and boasted facilities such as a hothouse, cafe, changing rooms and first aid room.

Take a look through our galley to see if you can spot anyone you know.
