Where would much-enjoyed amenities like the Kennet and Avon Canal be without its army of volunteers.
People who keep this restored and much appreciated relic from the country’s industrial past up and running as a leisure facility.
The canal is in the care of the Canal and River Trust and your Director caught up with some of those volunteers busy erecting information boards along the length of the recently resurfaced towpath leading out of Bath and into beautiful countryside.
One of the boards marks the path that leads off – across the main Bristol to London railway line – towards the Cleveland Pools.
This is what remains of an original Georgian lido and an historic structure it is hoped will soon be restored and re-opened to the public as an open-air swimming pool.
It’s good to see the board now doing its bit to both mark the lido’s presence but also tell people of the positive plans the Cleveland Pools Trust – and its own army of volunteers – have for its future.
