Bristol City Council closed down the popular Bristol North baths in 2005, as part of an overhaul of swimming facilities in the city. The authority said Bristol North was in disrepair and too expensive to run.

The site was bought and originally going to be turned into an NHS Health centre, but so far nothing has happened.

See the evening post story about the redevelopment:

Everything is still there and the power is on in some parts, some very nice original features, it's just a shame about the suspended ceiling that was put up!

Visited with whodareswins, and big thanks to TheFamousThreeGoTo... for showing me this one :thumb

Update - May 2012

The baths have been temporarily turned into an art gallery/cinema/music venue etc. All looking very good, and was lucky enough to get in and have a look around before it opened one morning. They've done a fantastic job of tidying the place up too. Could see a massive difference!

It's open from 2pm most days I believe if you want to go and have a look :)
