Trentham Gardens Lido

Looks a lovely pool to research the history.  I believe it was art deco in design.

To be updated soon with my own hunt!

Trentham Gardens Lido possible site?  NO.  Google earth. I have been corrected. The arrowed water is in fact the reservoir for the gardens and not the remains of the lido. Please see comment below. Very interesting.  I shall leave this here because someone took his time to correct me!

Now found the actual site thank you Google earth.  I knew where to look.  Will be visiting Trentham Gardens and Archives in the spring.
