Sorry. No location data for this photo.
The outside changing cabins were just to the left of the picture.The high and spring diving boards were where the photo was taken from.The hut was for a putting pitch. Behind the hut were steps up to a small band stand cut into the hillside.The place was always packed for the annual swimming gala.The main event was the polo match between Skipton and a team from a nearby town.In the winter when the pool was frozen it was used for skating.

The stream from Rankins Well was said to be the feeder stream for the outdoor pool. Does anyone know how Rankins Well got its name
