Family Build Swimming Pool In Their Back Garden Using Hay Bales

A family who live on a farm have geniusly created a swimming pool out of hay bales so enjoy the heatwave.

After a few beers with a friend, the cogs in Ed Sealey's brain began turning.

The farmer, 32, from Hazelbury Bryan, Dorset, decided to use some old hay bales to create an impressive pool in his back garden, lining it with a plastic silage sheet before putting in the water.

The pool took 12 hours to construct and fill, and since, Ed and his family have been enjoying swimming around in the sunshine.

"After a few beers, myself and my friend Jon decided to build a pool with left over hay bales so we got the tractor and worked out that pinning in 4 x 4 string bales will be enough to resemble a pool," he said.

"We used a nice clear plastic silage sheet for the lining and then started the long process of filling the old girl up.

"It took some six hours to fill but unfortunately the sides split sending half the water flooding out.

"We then had a few more beers and came to the conclusion that we needed to strengthen the sides as the pressure from the water was too great. So we spent another six hours filling the old girl up and it was ready.

Ed finished by saying: "It just goes to show you don't need a lot of money to have a fun time, just a great idea and great friends."

These country folk seem to have the right idea. Not long ago we heard about Dave Eastwood, who turned an old digger into a hot tub for his partner Helen Kettleborough.

Not perturbed by the lack of electricity, Dave used a hand drill with a plastering attachment to create the bubbles for the authentic hot tub experience.

Once the scene was set, retired childminder Helen climbed in via a ladder and enjoyed her long-awaited soak with a glass of wine in hand.

Clever, eh? Now, where can we find some hay bales?
