    Ladywell Leisure centre has just been boarded up. Looks like there are workmen inside at the moment, but could be an interesting explore in the future.

    Has 37.5m pool and there used to be Turkish baths, not sure what happened to them.

    cool, I guess it's closed because of the new centre on loampit vale. there's been hoarding around the back for ages now but for some reason I thought it was being refurbished...

    Not worth the hassle...
    Bit too late for it, sounds like it would've been good when it was a lot more fresh.​

    This is the thing right by the park, I walked past it a couple of months ago when I walked the route of the ravensbourne knee deep in water. Looks fucked, but good work on getting in there.

    that's not the leisure centre, this was it: http://goo.gl/maps/QX4L5

    hoarding went up towards the end of '13 and then was demolished at the beginning of '14. I tried it a couple times, but it was heavily boarded and to tell the truth, I really couldn't be bothered to put any effort into it. if it was another 10-15 stories taller I might have...

    Last time i went to Ladywell baths (in like 2007!) the baths were locked up tight and had security in the building but there was a gym at the back very much like the photo above.

    Im sure the place has changed since then tho. No one ever had photos of the pool itself.

    Well it's odd, the gym at the back was obviously a big hall at some point but It did burn down and in the wooden floor there's big gaps where it's burnt through and it reveals a tiled swimming pool looking structure. It would've been something in good condition, but as you say, it's been a while since it closed.

    Ahh i see so this is the front pool and the 'gym' at the back would have been the other pool. (they usually had two) Looks like they have both been boarded over. Can you do a proper report so we can see what the actual deal is?
