Yesterday The Argus reported on the plans to restore Saltdean Lido to its fomer glory.

Today’s Timeout takes a look back at the lidos and pools of Brighton and Hove.

Many of them have closed, but Saltdean Lido reopened last year.

Its pool sits within a Grade II listed Art Deco structure near Saltdean Park.

It initially opened in the 1930s, back when Saltdean was a fashionable retreat for tourists.

The building was designed by Richard W H Jones, who also designed the Saltdean’s Ocean Hotel.

It closed in 2012 and reopened once again as a pool last June after a crowdfunding campaign.

The reopening event sold out, but the building itself has not received any attention.

It is therefore currently unsafe and out of use to the public, despite the £3 million already spent on it.

The fundraisers are now trying to raise the £72,000 they need to unlock a £4.1 million lottery grant to further restore and preserve the building.

They want to transform it back into a leisure facility, community hub and tourist destination.

It is pictured here in its heyday on busy summer days, from above and again when the cleaners were at work in 1975.

Worthing Lido is shown here in 1988, the year it was closed.

The swimming pool was added to the existing bandstand on Worthing seafront in 1957, but it was closed and converted into a family entertainment centre.

Finally, a group of children playing and having fun on an inflatable float at Burgess Hill Lido are pictured here in 1990.

The lido was built in 1936 and closed in 1998.
