Each year, the Friends work tirelessly
to reclaim this historic sea water pool,
located in an idyllic spot in Brixham,
Devon, from the ravages inflicted
upon it by the wild winter storms and
huge seas. Shoalstone Pool is one of
only a few remaining sea water pools
in this country. The money raised by the Friends pays for its annual cleaning, painting and recommissioning, and also helps to build a contingency fund in the event of a major storm and any subsequent repairs needed. When you join the Friends of Shoalstone Pool, or contribute via the Square Metre Appeal or attend one of the Friends' fundraising events, you are making an important contribution to the preservation of an iconic amenity which is loved and enjoyed both by local residents and the many visitors to the region.
