Day trips (or longer if you were lucky) from Keighley to Morecambe were regular features of the summer season from the 1930s to the 1970s. From 1936, one of the major attractions was the Super Swimming Stadium, home to Aqua Shows and Miss Great Britain pageants.
The story of the Stadium is told in ‘In the Swim: Morecambe’s Super Swimming Stadium’ by Barry and Lesley Guise, published earlier this year and available directly from the authors. Telephone 01524 824300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. It costs £20.00 including postage and packaging and needs to be paid for by cheque.
The History Society is hoping to arrange a talk about this popular destination for next year.
