Report - Harcourt Sands Indoor Swimming Pool, Isle of Wight - September 2018

There are loads of reports on the rest of the holiday park but non feature the swimming pool, only @albino-jay and myself have done it as far as I know.

It's belled up, double boarded and used by the fire brigade for training - the rest of the park is left to rot but this is kept super secure.​

Harcourt Sands was originally two holiday parks, Warners Puckpool and Warners St. Clare. Puckpool was built in 1939 and rapidly requisitioned by the navy to become HMS Medina.
St Clare was built after the war and the two were merged in the '90's.

Later taken over by Haven and then Renouned the whole site closed in September 2006. Plans for redevelopment recently fell through and part of the site is up for sale.

Was gutted at the fact i couldnt get inside this part when i visited it, knew it would be a gem inside!

Without giving too much away, did the access involved quite a high drop? (not from the roof)
