With 10 hours to go the Thames Baths Project has exceeded its target by raising in excess of £140,000 on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
The proposed pontoon would rise and fall with the tide, providing and oasis for wild swimmers right in the heart of London. The filtered, heated water will provide for visitors an experience that has been lost to the British in recent decades, a view of London mirrored at eye level by the waters of our greatest river.
The planning application is expected to go through this year. Building work should commence in 2016 with the first swimmers taking to the waters in 2017. If we are not careful visitors may soon start to think the Great Britain is part of Europe after all.
