Wotton Pool in 1969 (WottonPool1969b.jpg)

The evolution of Wotton Pool has occurred over many years. The construction of the pool began in 1959 by a group of pupils and teachers from Wotton-under-edge county Secondary School, and some local engineers. Their motivation for building the pool was educational: the curriculum included handicraft and constructional skills, and the pool became a project in which the whole school invested their enthusiasm and optimism.
