When Walpole Bay Tidal Pool was built in 1937, Margate was one of the grandest resort towns in England. By the 1970s, package tourism had caused an economic slump, the pool was falling into disrepair, and the town was characterised by rising unemployment and socio-economic issues. But today, 80 years on, Margate's demographic has again changed and so has the way this vast sea pool is used and enjoyed. In this short, meditative film, filmmaker Kathryn Ferguson and writer Anna Hart explore the magical healing nature of the sea, and the value of a true community pool in turbulent times.
