    "STUDENTS at South Worcestershire College could soon have a new lifestyle academy after plans were submitted for a change of use of Evesham’s old leisure centre.

    The college, based next to the centre in Davies Road, announced in October that it had agreed in principle to buy the redundant building and a final decision was set to be made this month.

    A planning application has now been submitted to Wychavon District Council to change the old leisure centre into an educational establishment.

    If approved, the building will be used by students studying courses including hair and beauty, sports, travel and tourism.

    Earlier in the year, residents started a campaign urging Wychavon, who ran the centre, to turn it into an ice rink, bowling alley or both.

    More than 100 Evesham High School students signed a petition also calling for an ice rink."


    Haven't had chance to check access yet,but lead to believe it's reasonably do able. I wondered if there was anyone local who'd be up for having either a recce with me, as I'm a newbie and don't really know what I'm looking for, or to have a go at an explore.

    Or if anyone had already had a a go of course...

    Hi there,

    Was wondering if you had any interest about your post?

    I remember learning to swim here as a child, I've peered through the windows into the empty pool a few weeks ago, but haven't been inside.

    I'm also a newbie, so don't really know what to look for/ how to go about getting inside...

    Hi, did you ever find a viable way in? Sounds interesting, something intriguing and photogenic about empty abandoned pools

    Nah mate anything is doable sooner or latter one way or another just saying when we went to have a look a few months ago it was sealed like a ducks arse still got the pics to show the boarding but by your reply sounds like you have been in recently in which case don't be all fluff and no balls and get the report up or explain the meaning of your use of rubbish and your use of punctuations marks.

    Nope, I'm afraid not, the 'Rubbish' was merely one of disappointment at it being sealed up so tight. As you can see, I'm a newb, think I'll pick a softer target for my first hit.

    Hi guys, I'm a newb in here too, been exploring for some time now, kept these explorations to myself for a while not realising that the Internet can spread as far as sharing others visits. I live in Worcester, I'm up for this visit if anyone can plan a time and day. PM me for arrangement.

    That was a shitty thing to say. :banghead

    I've noticed a lot of your posts are as unhelpful as the one I have quoted above.

    I'm all for taking a look myself. However, there are people who live closer who are more likely to check this place out more frequently than I possibly could. I am sure in this instance it makes more sense to ask locals to make contact via PM if there are any developments.
