Indoor Swimming Pool
A good example of a purpose-built 1930s public swimming baths. The pool was opened in June 1936 at a cost of £31,000. It was designed by J.E.Lewis and built by Henderson Brothers. The building was recorded ahead of demolition in 2011. It was refused for listing. The exterior was largely unaltered although the interior had undergone frequent and dramatic changes with very few original features surviving. Interior original features recorded included enamel glazed bricks and indented handholds around its edge.
