Learning To Swim

A Memory of Brixham

I have fond memories of Shoalstone Pool. Both my sister and I learnt to swim in this pool. i can remember a swimming gala, about the time of the photo, we had to walk around the pool and up and over the diving board, which i was frightened to do as I didn't like heights !!!! Can also remember in the winter at high tides watching the sea wash over into the pool. So glad to hear recently that this freshwater pool is to be saved.

  • How does it feel, seeing these places again?
  • Do you remember stories about the community, its history & people?
