Thank you to all volunteers who have helped in getting the pool ready for the summer of 2021.  Without volunteers we would be unable to open and your support is greatly appreciated.

The pool is due to open on 12 June with Covid-19 secure measures in place so you will see some differences to usual - please bear with our team as we get used to working with them!

We are still looking for people to help with the shop rota. If you can spare some time o help then please call in to the pool and see if there is a space on the rota you could fill.

Shap pool 2020

At over 900ft above sea level, Shap swimming pool is England's highest open air heated pool.  Our fully enclosed pool is 16.5 metres long, 1.5 metres at the deep end and is heated to 26 degrees C. We have small shop that sells refreshments. A qualified lifeguard is on duty at all times.

Our baby pool and sandpit are currently unavailable due to Covid restrictions.


The pool is also available for private hire and pool parties. Please call into the shop for more details.
Run entirely by volunteers, our community pool is open daily until the beginning of September. We're easy to find, just off the A6 by the memorial park.
