Hi i Remember the Rowheath lido and i used to be in there all summer and i used to play in the park too it was my hangout as a kid. I lived in selly oak road from 1968 and my father passed in 2007 he still lived there. The lido was brill back then its such a shame it was demolished and turned into a housing estate, many happy hour spent there, i will ask my mates see if anyone has any pictures. One of my friends parent back in the late 70s maybe very early 80s im not sure tried to reopen it. Keith ReubenThank you for this. it was a very pleasant pool, and even saw a Swimming International at one point. How sad that a place of such "paradise" can be rubbished away. The cuttings sound very interesting. I'm wondering if you could copy them. Would this be easy laying the cuttings book into a copier. it could then be scanned. Do you do this? Or they could be staight scanned onto a computer and saved onto desktop and serve as an attachment for any info posted onto a forum. Thanks so much for the information
Just arrived back from Solihull. My sister has got just what I want on The Greswolde Lido! plus extra info on Shirley Lido. I shall be entering the info on the website this week. I need to find out if the Lido was linked to the hotel, because as you see on an aerial view, I have laid the pool a little way behind the hotel by way of deduction from Google 1945 and it is more along Crab Mill Lane.Looking forward to the info on the Greswolde Lido. Only saw it from the outside by my first wife's relative used to run the Greswolde Hotel. Not sure if the two were linked?
Thank you so much for this info. May I take copy of this contribution to my LostLidos site or for you to go to https://www.soyouwantto.co.uk/greswoldelido.html and continue on to comment. This would be very much appreciated. Thanks AnneAs far as I am aware this is the Lido at the Greswolde in Knowle.
