Another solo venture, quite enjoyable too :D

A bit of history:
Heath Town's structurally integrated Public Baths and Library - an architectural two-in-one was built in 1932 to the design of the Wolverhampton Borough Engineer's Department, after several years' discussion in separate Council Committees, the Art Gallery and Public Library Committee and the Parks and Baths Committee. The building has both architectural and social-historical importance locally, and architectural significance nationally

In 2003 the city council declared that there were structural problems with the baths; and closed them. For two years the building was notable for its increasing dereliction. In June 2005 it was announced that the council were in discussions with the Primary Care Trust with a view to turning the baths into a community health centre. At present it still remains abandoned.
