Latest Update

Castleton Pool will re-open on Wednesday 25 May - apologies for the inconvenience. 24/05/16


Castleton pool is a private hire pool used mainly by two swimming clubs, a small number of schools and members of the public.

The pool was closed on 9 May as a precautionary measure after routine tests showed legionella in the heating system (not in the swimming pool). Link4Life carried out work and testing after that, including a full pasteurization and chlorination, and further testing has been carried out. Link4Life has a rigorous management and maintenance programme for all its facilities, including Castleton Pool, and the safety of our members, users and staff is one of our main priorities.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and Public Health England have been informed as a further precautionary measure. The Council and Link4Life have been assured that the measures taken so far will have minimized the already small risk of pool users becoming ill.

Anyone who is concerned should contact NHS 111 or their GP.

Members and users of the pool have been updated and told that the pool will remain closed for the time being. Alternative arrangements have been offered and accepted by a majority of users and we continue to work on this to ensure minimum disruption.

Castleton Pool

Castleton Swimming Pool is primarily used by Aquabears Swimming Club and Castleton Swimming Club. It provides a much needed training venue for competition swimmers and is also used by the Clubs as a teaching pool.

Link4Life is working to support the Clubs in their aim to provide some public access to Castleton Pool.
