The pool is now open for the 2022 season.

Thank you to all volunteers who help us run the pool. Without volunteers we would be unable to open and your support is greatly appreciated. We always welcome new members to the pool committee and new volunteers. This can involve a range of activities from fundraising to maintenance and marketing to shop volunteering.

If you think you can help in any way, we'd love to hear from you - email us on

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. New for 2022 is our toddler splash pool.


We have small shop that sells refreshments. A qualified lifeguard is on duty at all times.

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 usually open from late May until the beginning of September. We're easy to find, just off the A6 by the memorial park.
