This article will bring back memories for many a Merseysider and indeed visitors to the once popular lidos around the coast of what are now Sefton and Wirral Boroughs. My dear old friend Charles (Uncle Albert) Walker, sadly no longer with us, would often talk of his exploits around New Brighton Baths in the late 1940’s.

My own recollection of outdoor an swimming pool and how cold they were is from Prestatyn Holiday Camp in the late 1960’s.
