History

Following the wishes of Alice Clark, Greenbank Pool was commissioned by her nephew Bancroft Clark to provide swimming facilities to the residents of Street, particularly to women and children, as men were inclined to swim naked in the River Brue.

Since opening on the 30th of April 1937, over four and a half million people have come and enjoyed Greenbank Pool and the pool welcomes many new customers each year.

As a registered charity Greenbank Pool continues to open each season thanks to a gratefully received grant from Street Parish Council, a trust fund left by Alice Clark and of course the thousands of visitors who visit the pool each year.

A full history of Greenbank can be read on History boards located in the social room.
