Yorkshire Swim Works is a Community Interest Company, looking to bring safe, naturally filtered outdoor swimming to the region.

From the seed of an idea

Yorkshire Swim Works was conceived during a lockdown quest to find amazing + safe places to swim outdoors. 

Collaborative thinking

The idea was shared with a group of expansive thinkers, and has grown into a project that goes beyond swimming, with the potential to create decades of positive impact.

Local ties, and project specific specialisms

The Directors and pro-bono supporters are all based locally with strong ties to the area. Specialisms include commercial strategy development, community engagement, advocacy, communications and PR, heritage + culture, marketing + branding, the outdoor swimming + lido sector, landscape, architecture and design.

Join the journey

Please let us know if you think your time, ideas or money can help to make Yorkshire Swim Works vision become a reality. 

We’re looking for people and organisations with specialisms in Planning, Heritage, Greenbelt, and Ecology.
