Visited with Catullus.
This was a spur of the moment night visit. The place looks very different now to how to it looked in other reports on 28dl, as the swimming pool has been covered up and the diving boards have been sealed off.

History (from http://www.savebroomhillpool.org/History.aspx):
The pool opened in April 1938. It is 55 yards long and 8 lanes wide, the pool is 5 metres deep at the deep end, accommodated 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 metre diving boards, a grandstand for 700 spectators, underwater flood lighting and changing facilities for 70 ladies and 108 men.
The pool closed at the end of the 2002 summer season, and never reopened for the summer of 2003.
