Living in Bidwell Gardens the lido was my family’s number one place to visit. Surprisingly we have no photographs. Surely there must be some out there? Would be great if someone could upload to the photos pages. There is a short clip on you tube from Pathe News from way back. If you are interested search for London Diving Display (1939) .

Hi Paul,

There are a couple of video on this site that relate to Durnsford Lido

This video is focussed on the time Johnny Weismuller (the actor who played Tarzan) appeared at the pool, 

In addition, the British Pathe archive footage from the 1930s is available here:

Perhaps the Bruce Castle Museum and Local History Archive may help with more old photographs?
