I read with interest about the derelict boating pool on the North shore in Blackpool - which was originally a boating pool/popular bathing area in the past.

I have visited Blackpool regularly as a tourist over the years and more recently as an artist in residence at Blackpool School of the Arts.

I submitted a conceptual artwork which was exhibited in the Grundy Open which was wrongly titled bat cave instead of 'bathing pool'.- It's perhaps a good job this letter is being typed!.

The concept sketch was to create a modern island with water sports roundabout. I just thought it's a relatively safe, sheltered area and it may be an idea to update and return to a shade of it's former glory!.

I note with particular interest that there is another Artist Residency as part of Lightpool which I am in process of applying to.- watch this space!.
