Tynemouth Seawater Pool

The seawater pool at Tynemouth is a heroic ruin, built and opened in May 1925 at the end of long sands, opening just a year after the one at Fairy Bower on the other side of the world. There is a campaign to rescue and refurbish the pool by community subscription.

The tidal pool was filled in during the 1990’s and just a haunting pond with exposed rocks is left to reflect the sky.
