    Sitting in the grounds of Stanford Hall, this Grade II listed Lido began life as a reservoir holding the water supply for the house.

    In 1928 Sir Julien Cahn purchased Stanford Hall from the Kimballs for £70,000.

    Here Cahn built himself, amongst other things, an enormous outdoor heated swimming pool with coral walls holding fountains and artificial caves.



    Crusader put this up as a lead recently so (like the Labrador I am) I went after it.

    It’s a bit overgrown and on the other side of a ten foot wall, but well worth the effort. Cheers Crusader.

    Hi

    I'n totally new to this site and only came upon it when searching info on Stanford Hall Lido.

    A friend of mine used to frequent this place, I knew nothing of it's existence, but I am interested in the atmosphere this place generates in my head, it is great but creepy, but can almost hear people having fun and laughing. It must be an eerie place to be in such a dilapidated state with such lovely history.

    I'd love to visit there and take a heap of photo's and take the drone to do some aerial videography.

    Do you have any suggestions how I can gain access whether legally or not, obviously if I'm to use a drone it would be nice to get permission from some one in authority? Any advice?

    Thanks
    Mike

    A time machine would be your only option I'm afraid. I took a friend this time last year and demolition was underway.
