The tide had well and truly gone out at Lymington salt water baths the other day, closed and drained at the end of the season.
During the summer there was an active canoeing school using the pool for training, but I guess the staffing costs of keeping it open for the winter out weight the revenue brought in from such activities.
One price of good news is the little cafe which normally closes for the winter is going to remain open, not only that, they's improved their menu with breakfasts, bacon rolls etc. Perched right on the river path it's a great place to stop for a snack and watch the boats in the river, the seating area has been protected against the prevailing westerly with the installation of glass (probably polycarbonate) screens so it should be quite a comfortable spot.
