In 1963 a fundraising campaign begain in Chipping Norton to build a swimming pool. More than £20,000 was raised in just seven years and in 1970 the Lido was opened.

With its heated 25m pool and toddler pool, slide and café, the Lido is an oasis in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, whether you’re a serious early-morning swimmer or a family looking for an afternoon's outdoor fun. 

Since 2004 the Lido has been run by local people as a charity and the Lido Café serves lovely home-cooked food.

The Lido's big fundraising event of the year is its auction of promises which has received huge support from Jeremy Clarkson, the journalist, author and broadcaster who lives locally.
