    Hello all,

    This is my 1st post on here .

    Been out with my mate to Our old swimming baths that's now disused.

    I believe the pool was built at the same time as the schools Bushloe and Guthlaxton College (built 1954-7, ages 14-18, former grammar school)
    as we used to go there for swimming lessons,

    The baths shut March 31st 2014 , photos taken 25th May 2014

    the baths are to be demolished to make way to a new complex May 2015 of a 6 lane super pool

    Visited here myself and not long stuck up a report
    What SJP said, but I have to say you had some nice lighting, and its a good report.
    Look forward to more of your reports from Leicester area

    It's strange how a few weeks can effect a building RE: graff compared to rich's report

    Hi Woofoo,

    Lovely set there! I'm super-jealous you managed to get in Wiggy baths. I went late-ish Sunday and there was security there (sitting in a car inside the grounds, behind the new gates). I was gutted. I went again last night...security there again. I'm sadly going to have to write this one off. It makes me think there's something of particular interest for them to have around-the-clock security, 7 days a week.

    Looking forward to your other RAW files!

    Well I went to Whetstone tonight (Whittle/English Electric building). Spent a couple of hours there and seeing as I was Wiggy end, I swung by the baths....No security!! I'm going to check over the next few days before going to try and get some photos. Cheers for the heads up about the fire though. :thumb
