Local photographer David Roper captured some extreme weather down at Shoalstone Pool.

The large waves were crashing over the pool wall on Friday 28th June. David told us, "Brixham had a lot in common with North Cornwall on Friday 28th June with high winds producing 'Torbay Rollers'."

We're pleased to say the weather has calmed down since and the summer is on its way.

The pool was officially opened for the 2019 season by Sharron Davies, Olympic Medallist and BBC Sports Presenter, on 25th May.

Shoalstone Pool is open for general swimming from May to September, with lifeguards on duty from 10am to 6pm every day.

There is no entry charge, but a voluntary donation of £2 per swim or £5 per family to help cover the running costs.
