User Comments:


I remember them coming round for money to pay back the loan for this, the 'swimming pool fund'




Dr. Christopher Erswell

As attended Allerton Grange from 1967-69 just after this swimming pool had been built and I recall the "swimming pool fund" that was launched to pay for it. The pool was brand new when I was there and it comes as shock seeing this demolition photo. How time flies...
