Then One Day...

Storms, community shares and the lido that keeps surviving

Listen on

Episode notes

Jubilee Pool in Penzance is a striking art deco salt-water lido, built in the 1930s. It has always been a very special part of the Cornish community until disaster struck in 2014. A devastating storm nearly destroyed the outdoor pool and forced it to close. Since then, the community have come together not only to save the lido but to ensure swimmers can get their well-being fix all year round, come rain wind or snow.
