Settle Swimming Pool, which was forced to close following storm damage to the roof late last year is now likely to remain shut until the completion of the redevelopment work later this summer.

Insurers have agreed to meet the full cost of repairing the pool roof and consequent loss of business. However hopes of making speedy repairs to the roof have been set back following the full assessment of the damage and the repairs needed to make the roof secure for the long term. 

The specialist materials needed for the roof repairs are now on order but such is delivery time that it looks unlikely that the work can done before completion of the redevelopment programme now underway.

This means that the most likely scenario is that a full re-opening of the pool and the new facilities will take place at the same time later this summer.

One positive development is that following the roof repairs it will now be possible to install solar panels on the roof area and a special fund-raising project is being launched to raise the estimated £18,000 installation costs. The cost of installation is expected to be recouped over a six year period, through reduction in the pool’s electricity bills and the sale of surplus electricity to the grid.

The first event in a fund raising programme will be through participation of a pool team in the Dragon Boat Regatta to be held at Coniston Cold lake on May 15.

A Justgiving page has been set up to sponsor the paddlers. This can be found at

The pool is also allocating the £1750 generously donated by last year’s Hellifield Harness Racing to the solar panel fund.

Pool chair Pat Taylor said: “Whilst it is disappointing that the roof repairs are going to take much longer than we hoped and we are  sorry that we are not able to provide the swimming facilities that our supporters value so much, the acceptance by the insurers of both the repair costs and loss of business means that financially we have suffered far less damage that might have been the case. 

“The opportunity to add solar panels will be of great long-term benefit to the pool and together with the new facilities will equip us well for the future.”

Settle Pool makes a splash with Community Loans
13 Mar 2022

Settle Pool has launched a scheme where supporters can loan money to the pool through the government’s Social Investment Tax Relief Scheme.

This scheme enables charities and social enterprises like the pool to borrow money from supporters, who in turn get tax relief at a rate that gives a higher rate of return than they would expect to get from a bank or building society.

The pool is looking to raise £100,000 for three years to cover the period up to the point when the new health and wellbeing hub becomes financially sustainable.
