Here are pictures and a description of the proposed construction by Hodson Architects

This project is to be financed by local fundraising and hopefully with lottery money.  The pool is located in a garden setting on the north side of Humberston Park Special School.
The pool enclosure is timber framed with cedar cladding externally and large areas of glazing on the north side to maximize views to the garden without the detrimental effects of glare on the pool surface.
The new building 'plugs' into the existing fabric of the school, linking directly into the main hall, staff room and existing changing and laundry facilities.
Hydrotherapy works by using the effects of turbulence, buoyancy and warmth to reduce the levels of pain, spasm and discomfort, often brought about by exercising on land.
The pool will be used by the pupils during school hours and by other groups representing people with disabilities on an evening and at weekends.
