The Saltdean Lido

The Saltdean Lido is an Art Deco building designed by architect R.W.H. Jones. It is listed at Grade II* by English Heritage. The lido was built in 1937-38, its design was hailed as the most innovative design of its type in Britain. It has a tea terrace, a sun deck, a café perched on the flat roof and distinctive curved wings at either end.

The Saltdean Lido Community Interest Company runs The Lido, it is a ‘not for profit’ organisation set-up by volunteers to return Saltdean Lido to its former glory. The first phase of its restoration has been completed with the re-creation of the original 1938 swimming crescent-shaped pool. Phase Two will see the main building restored to its former glory to open its door to the public by 2023.

East Saltdean

This print depicts East Saltdean with what was at the time the Grand Ocean, a luxury hotel opened in 1938. Designed by architect RWH Jones with the classic modern styling of the age. They are currently luxury apartments.

My print continues towards the East and over the road with White cliffs Cafe with its expansive view of the chalk cliffs and the English Channel.
