Due to the COVID-19 pandemic Ingleton Swimming Pool did not open during the summer of 2020. Since then, we have been using the time to carry out some planned improvements including some splash park facilities, an improved outside waiting area and updated office layout plus necessary maintenance. As soon as we know what is happening with regard to the 2021 summer season then we will update this website.
If you would like to make a charitable donation to help us through these difficult times then please see our Contact page for details – many thanks.
Ingleton’s open-air 20m heated swimming pool is an idyllic place to visit to experience the pleasure and enjoyment of outdoor swimming in one of the UK’s best lido’s. We hope to provide an enjoyable, fun and relaxed environment for all the family.
Please look at the Opening Times for a detailed breakdown of what is on offer and when.
We accept Private Pool Hire bookings so if you would like to hire the pool for a party, a club event or a family get together then please contact us.
We are located near the centre of the village, down the hill from Ingleton Youth Hostel in a riverside park setting. There is no parking available at the swimming pool but it is available throughout the village.
Please Note: During especially busy periods we sometimes need to operate a coloured wrist band system to ensure everybody gets to use the pool on a rotation basis. Please arrive early for General Public Sessions during very warm summer school holiday days to ensure you are not disappointed.
The swimming pool was originally dug out and built by local volunteers in 1933 and the workers included miners from the New Ingleton Colliery (which closed in 1936). Take a look at our History page for more information. Today the pool is managed through two committees consisting members of the local community who give their time on a voluntary basis. We are continually undertaking a programme of pool improvement and modernisation as funds allow.
Ingleton Swimming Pool is a registered charity (Ingleton Rural Community Association Charitable Incorporated Organisation No: 1171743) and all monies raised by our activities are put back into the running of the pool to keep this very unique facility open for use to the general public.
From all the committee, staff, volunteers and helpers associated with the pool, we wish you all a great summer and enjoy your time with us.
