The Day
Trying to keep up weekly videos on our channel, so this weekend we were off again to a big risk of an explore, as it is as far away from where we live as we'd ever plan to go, and the last report of it was back in March...

History
Crewe Corporation Public Swimming Baths opened on 6th November 1937. It cost £3,000 to build and open and the mayor of Crewe said on the opening day that the day 'marked the fulfilment of a long and ardent desire on the part of the Corporation to give the fullest opportunity to develop a healthy, happy and virile people.' There is little known about the baths after that until it's closure last year. Currently Cheshire council are looking for a developer to work on the site but as for now they haven't found anyone.

An incredible history can be found here, more focused towards the opening of the baths.

The Explore
We anticipated access to be hard on this site due to the fact it's opposite a park and a busy road, and we were not wrong. We managed to get in however, very dirty and injured but inside, we knew it was worth it. The place was huge.

We found two pools, changing rooms, a gym, a dance/zumba area and a sauna. I would also note that under the pool and towards the back of the building, there is an entirely different complex; mazes of tunnels around the pool and under it feature all the major piping, boilers and other machinery that kept the leisure centre going in it's time. It also adds a really eerie feel to the location.

Pictures
So I managed to fix my camera's video settings but it seems I have mucked up my photo, please correct me if I'm wrong but do these photos look blurry at all? It might just be me.. Anyway, this colossal feel to this place lead to some hopefully good photos, there was a lot of opportunities. Please leave some feedback :)
