freediving the UK's biggest pool

Went for a dip yesterday in one big-ass pool, Tooting Bec Lido, which is endless

georgina checks out the endless blue

or officially, 100 yards (91.44 meters). It is an open air pool, which you also notice when you dive in

dive and steps

for you'll instantly freeze your nuts off, whether you have them or not. But once you're used to being thermally castrated, you start to enjoy the view -clear water which just dissolves into blue

the place is 106 years old now, and houses the spirit of Rothko
