Pells Pool

At the junction of Brook St and St John's Hill, Lewes East Sussex BN7 2BA

If you’re visiting Lewes this summer, make sure you chuck your swimming stuff into your bag, just in case. On a hot day there’s nowhere nicer to be than the Pells Pool, Lewes’s community-run, spring-fed outdoor pool, which proudly claims to be the oldest freshwater pool in the country – it celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2011. It’s a lovely spot, with a big tree-lined lawn edging the 46-metre-long pool, plus a paddling pool for little ones, and a stall serving home-baked goodies. There’s no denying the water can be somewhat, er… bracing, and in the school holidays the place is absolutely heaving; but if you time it right you can have the pool virtually to yourself. Bliss.
