The Lido and Clifton baths Margate kent

I have visited here before but not for a very long time so was nice to get back inside even though the place is more of a deathtrap than before!

Brief history of which there is much

The complex of buildings on the site are of two distinct phases: an early-C19 sea bathing
establishment, dating from 1824, called the Clifton Baths; and a C20 lido, dating from 1926, called the Cliftonville Lido from 1938. The structures are on four levels, the lower levels excavated from the chalk cliffs and only the upper level, on the landward side, above ground level.
