    Visited with Seffy and TheFamousThreeGoTo a few years ago before the art project there. This place is currently being developed into a Community Health Centre. This was a very enjoyable explore.

    Brief history:

    The grade 2 listed building was commissioned in 1912 as part of a string of municipal pools in Bristol. It was completed in 1917 and almost immediately requisitioned for war purposes. It opened as a pool post war. During the winters the pool was too cold to bathe in, so in the years between the war, every late autumn the pool was boarded over and the building was used as a cinema, then the boards were removed in late spring turning it back into a pool. In more recent years the pool was run by Bristol City Council, but for various reasons, and much to the anger and disappointment of the local community, it was shut in 2005.
