    Durham's City Baths and Washhouses opened in 1932, and made way for the city council's new Freeman's Quay complex in July 2008. The City Baths replaced a peat floored, covered pool - and heat from the pool was diverted to hot drying rooms and many women at the time would supplement a meagre household income by washing and drying other people's clothes. The upstairs offices appear to have been abandoned about 15 years ago judging by the dates on the doorway of one of the rooms. It is a shame this has closed down as it is a lovely building and modern baths just dont have the same character.
