Bracewell, Harold

Harold Bracewell was born 11 Jan 1907 in Britannia, Bacup, Lancashire. He later settled in Blackpool and then Marton, a Blackpool suburb. He died at Blackpool in 1984

He made two attempts to swim the channel in the 1950s and 60s. His first attempt failed when a pulled muscle forced him to quit just three miles from finishing. His second attempt ended after one hour and 55 minutes when he suffered severe cramp and couldn’t carry on.
