After a good deal of effort from all, Abbots Pool has now been temporarily closed to both keep people safe and preserve it as the place we know and love, rather than an urban lido which it was rapidly becoming, with all the dangers to health with its total lack of toilet facilities. We are working to get the legal protections to prevent this happening again, we would hope in September.
The influx of visitors has caused massive parking issues too, not least in blocking access for emergency vehicles and also destroying our verges. To prevent this parking restrictions with penalties have been established. Sadly someone has taken it upon themselves to be above the law and remove the cones! There will be more coming and any gentle advice to those breaking the law might be a sensible solution before the police are called!
