Broomhill Lido Receives First Round Pass from HLF
22nd October 2015
Now for some splashing news! Broomhill Pool in Ipswich, known in its darkest days as “Doomhill Lido” had fallen into dereliction since closing in 2002. We’re excited to announce that with the help of a Heritage Lottery Fund grant under the Heritage Enterprise programme, the project to restore this Grade II listed pool has taken off. HLF has granted £180,000 in initial development funding, with an anticipated £3.3 million still to come for further investment.
Working with partners Allies and Morrison, the team at Barker Langham pulled together a viability appraisal, feeding in to the first round HLF application. For more details about the project, click here.
