‘This was a facility were everything was thought of in its design but over the years this has gone and been eroded which is not so good for the customers. It costs £2 to swim at the moment.’ Jane Smith

Special Memories ‘When I was young I remember the stone floor and windows which are still the same now. Fundamentally it is the same as it was years ago.’ Jane Smith
