A House in Saltdean

House, SaltdeanI decided to post this Modernist house in Saltdean because I've recently heard that the wonderful Art Deco Lido in that small town in the south of England is under threat from developers who plan to fill in the pool and built over 100 flats on the site.

I wrote about the Saltdean Lido last November having visited there in either 2000 or 2001. It is a majestic building with the large pools in front.

Saltdean LidoThere is a campaign underway to try to save this great example of British summer holidays. Details of public meetings held in the area have been written up in The Argus newspaper with one option proposing that a public consortium purchase the Lido and operate the facility.

The building is heritage listed but that does not include the swimming pools. For more information on the Campaign to Save Saltdean Lido visit
