About Nantwich Brine Pool

Wide shot of Nantwich Outdoor PoolThe outdoor pool first opened to the public on the 1st July 1935 and the pool water temperature is now maintained at 74°F and through solar gain is usually much warmer. Some of our older customers still reminisce about their school days at the pool, when they claim the water was only just above freezing point and they happily swam in it!
