More about this scene

Despite a number of attempts at regeneration, the Lido at Ainsdale was an early casualty of the national move to overseas holidays. However, a lifeline has recently been thrown in the form of the development of wind- powered sports such as kite surfing, kite flying, landboarding, kite buggies and blokarting on the nearby beach. If the activities prove as popular as they are expected to, there are plans to develop Ainsdale Lido into a visitor centre, shop and training facility. During World War II the Lido was temporarily known as HMS Queen Charlotte (1941 to 1946), when it was used as the base for a naval anti- aircraft gunnery school.
