    Beechdale Swimming Centre opened in the 1970's, the Nottingham swimming team trained there for some time.
    More recent history Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Adlington spent much of her time here training.
    Reason for closing its doors for the final day on August 15th 2015 was due to a more advanced 50m pool opening near by at the Harvey Hadden Sports Village.

    Nice to see!

    Nice place!!! I am planning to visit there someday as I have chosen it as my academic project site. However, should I just walk in there or apply for permission to the city council?

    Good photos! Kept seeing this place on the news, I guess the campaigns to keep it open failed!
