Hello there!

I haven't visited a swimming pool yet so I was looking forward to this one...unfortunately I was let down by my buddy so I had to go it alone! I had a right laugh trying to get access, probably damaging my car in the process (don't ask) Anyway...on with the show!

HISTORY:

Chadderton’s Art Deco swimming baths are among several important civic buildings in this borough of Oldham. Four-times Olympic swimming champion Henry Taylor once served as attendant at the pool, which opened in 1937 and closed in 2006 after cracks were discovered in the roof. The Chadderton Historical Society has tried unsuccessfully to save the abandoned building, which Oldham Council is reportedly set on demolishing, despite the wishes of Chadderton residents and support from local councillors.
