Hampton Pool

Hampton Pool

Hampton open-air pool has been a favourite part of this community in West London since 1922. But London’s open-air pools are closing down and Hampton pool was also nearly closed in the 1980’s. A local campaign fought and successfully saved the pool and it is now ‘a real treat’ for hundreds of people every week of the year.This film explores the surreal beauty of Hampton Pool, and what it means to the people who use it.

Producer/Director: Anne O’Connell, Researcher: Jeanette James, Music: Jon Sorenson

‘Pool Time’ is a short film shot at Hampton Pool and edited to ‘April Kisses’ by the Father of Jazz Guitar, Eddie Lang
