    This is my first ever post and first semi-documented solo explore for a long time
    im only recently getting back into the swing of things and dont have alot of spare time. so even though i didnt get chance to properly document you can clearly see how much has changed since previous reports.. such a shame this building has been left to rot like this.

    The long-disused Collier Street Baths in Greengate, Salford, which date back to 1856. It was here that Mark Addy – the publican whose repeated heroic rescues of people from the River Irwell saved over 50 lives – learned to swim.

    The Collier Street Baths were erected at the start of a golden age of swimming pool building, which lasted until the First World War.

    By the middle of the 19th century, public health legislation had prompted the building of public bathing houses in an attempt to keep the booming population in this dirty industrial area clean. Swimming pools followed in the hope of further improving the health of the nation.

    Greengate Baths (Collier Street) Salford was founded on the original site of the Salford Union Workhouse and was opened in 1856 by the Manchester and Salford Baths & Laundries Company. The building was designed by a local architect Thomas Worthington. Over half the original building has been demolished and what remains is Grade II listed and on the English Heritage Buildings At Risk Register.
