Hi, I only have these few pictures from Victoria Baths from when I was filming there in 2010, I thought I'd post them anyway, some photographs are from underneath the swimming pool (basement area) some look like a victorian street but underground. very creepy place to be! The baths were opened in September 1906 by the Lord Mayor of Manchester who described the building as a "water palace''. Total cost £59,144. The building was closed in 1993.

''In September 2003, the Baths won the first series of the BBC's Restoration programme. The building was chosen by a public phone-vote from a short-list of ten buildings in danger of dereliction in the UK. It was awarded £3.4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund'' ,but that wasn't enough to resotore the entire building.

You can contact them for a visit if you like, I emailed them once they told me they just require a donation and they will let you explore :popcorn. here is a link to their website: Victoria Baths

Here is Victoria baths, wikipedia page: Victoria Baths - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
