    This was a complex of squash courts, gym, swimming pool and restaurant. It took advantage of a large community of contractors and their families when certain parts of Sellafield was being built. With nothing much else to do this was a perfect place to socialise, unwind, enjoy some food and get fit.

    Part of the building is currently undergoing conversion into a house. Of the parts of it you see here, some of the roof will be lifted and will be given way to garden.

    I spent a lot of time here in the early '80's, a fantastic place :) Latterly a nightclub was built but wasn't popular and didn't last long, then the whole place was closed. The building was a nightmare to heat, incredible inefficiency in the heating systems was obvious, room heating going through concrete tunnels and water pipes unlagged.

    The pics are hosted on Flickr and the full photoset is HERE - please click.

    The main entry to the restaurant, the pool area is to the right.
