Here is a slightly daft 53 second video I made about the place I love. It’s got a great sound track. Hope it makes you feel warm inside!
I often bang on about my local lido to anyone who will listen. It’s a large red brick building on Hampstead Heath, which looks a bit imposing. But to us lifers, it’s a sanctuary from the outside world – a happy prison. Inside is a big blue rectangle of unheated water 60 metres long by 25, which in summer climbs up to 25+ degrees but in winter can drop to zero.
