Decided to go to Oxford with non-member after reading some good reports etc. Left early, found everything gone except this gem. I loved this place, just my kinda thing. A bit small, but plenty of time can be spent here.

Oxford council decided to sell it off for £3.5m and it closed 23rd December 2014. It's been empty since and is in very good condition. Not really very much history on it, but a great explore. On with the photos.

The main pool. I kick myself at times like this for not getting a full frame camera...

(I also love that pool alarm sign too. Press button, rejoice at bacon received)


Interested to know who leaves such a luxurious safe behind?!

Doesn't look like much has changed since my visit apart from a clean up and removal of the fences, good work!
I noticed the fence rmeoval too... strange... maybe they needed them for something else
