Haringey Hornsey Lidos. – There were 4 open air pools in the District which no longer exist.

Muswell Hill Open Air Pool in Durnsford Road N22 which opened in
1934 and closed in 1988.

In the days of the lazy hazy days of summer.
Tottenham Lido in Lordship Lane N17 which opened in 1934 and closed in 1985
Tottenham Marsh Swimming Pool N17 which opened in 1905 and was demolished in 1939
The Hornsey Park Open Air Lido- Park Road – the Municipal Swimming Pool was initially opposed by residents in 1929.
The Lido transpired and functioned well until 1996. An Indoor Pool had joined the complex and both were in desperate need of a facelift. They had not kept up the pace over the years in customer anticipation, interests and opportunities
Plans were drawn up for an upgrade project in 1996. Mr David Hopkins – the Park Road boss looked to the future. He was hopeful of bringing facilities into the modern age.
OUTCOME: Today both pools are a large part of the functioning community.
More hints anyone – who goes shopping?
