Hathersage Swimming Pool

Oddfellows Road, Hathersage, Derbyshire, S32 1DU

This is a really magical spot – a heated pool (around 29 degrees!) where anyone can swim with the High Peak hills as a stunning backdrop. Built in the 1930s, it was once the focal point of a larger leisure complex, but that is sadly long gone. George Herbert Lawrence, a Sheffield manufacturer of razor blades dug deep and created this for the good people of Hathersage (and his factory workers), and he and his wife Elsie were present at the official opening of the pool on Saturday 25 July 1936. The weather was glorious, and there was a large turnout to watch swimming and diving displays from groups including the Sheffield City Police. It's quieter now, and kids will love it; plus Hathersage is a pretty village and worth a poke round, and a ten-minute walk away is the chic David Mellor cutlery factory and café. There are regular trains from Sheffield (it's only a 20-minute journey) or the 272 bus will deliver you if you're car-free.
