    Any idea whether the baths still exist or have they been demolished. Thanks

    Ah, the art deco loveliness. Apparently in 2014 the building was sold to a training company to train cooks in a working restaurant. Did this ever happen?

    It was sold. I do some work for the guy that owns it. They got outline planning permission granted and are working on detailed plans that will be going to planning quite soon. They have a few groups play 5aside football in the hall as well in the mean time
