Lymington: Sea water baths open and busy

Lymington’s sea water swimming pool has seen hundreds of people visiting during the hot weather.

This follows a period of uncertainty first about the baths’ future and more recently about allowing a private operator to run the historic facility. Local businessman Hugo Ambrose has the contract for five years from the town council.

The open air bath is the former King’s Saltern named after bookseller Richard King who 200 years ago owned 22 pans.

It’s a good place to visit when you have completed the coast path from Swanage.
