THE DERELICT SITE
After the outdoor (swimming) pool - as it became known by the end of the 20th century - closed in 1993 it had a short period as a leisure facility (featuring crazy golf and children's play areas) until 2008.
It now stands derelict in Wharfemeadows Park - a popular and otherwise attractive riverside park featuring a children's play area, boats, skateboard park, tennis courts and scenic walks.
The site is relatively compact with a culvert running beneath it. The existing buildings are in a state of disrepair but may have the potential to be renovated and incorporated in our plans (subject to structural surveys and functional and financial sustainability considerations).
The venue has the potential to boast amazing views across Lower Wharfedale. Its location on the banks of the River Wharfe with a southern aspect facing The Chevin and western aspect providing unobstructed views to the west.
