The Margate Lido
We were commissioned by the ‘save the Lido’ charity and Margate council to survey the former Margate Lido.
The old Clifton baths within the complex represent a unique survival of Georgian bathing history, there is a hidden subterranean network and echoes of leisure enjoyed from the plunge baths of the 1830s through to the nightclubs of the 1960s and 70s.
We laser scanned the entire subterranean premises including under partially submerged areas. The entire structure was a labyrinth of tunnels.
Below is a 360 photo tour of the area mentioned above – taking our laser scanners out on dinghies!

Below is a partial plan underground. In the circular area, at one time, horses were used to generate power to the water pumps.
