The unique outdoor swimming pool offers outdoor swimming from Saturday March 19 to October 29, with water heated to 28°C.

Assistant Pool Manager George Foy said: “It’s official, winter is coming to an end and spring will soon be upon us, which can only mean one thing - the opening of Hathersage pool!

“Our doors will officially open at 7.30am next Saturday for swimmers to step, leap and dive into their first outdoor heated swim of the season. The pool can be enjoyed by all ages, whatever the weather, come rain or shine and, as we are celebrating our 80th season this year, we’re kicking things off with a party.”
