10 years after this photo was taken I had swimming lessons at these baths with the cubs based at Woodhouse Moor Methodist Church.On the long walk home Akela(a very nice young lady called Barbara Dalton)treated her hungry pack to a bag of chips each to keep us going.I wonder if she`s still alive. I never did learn to swim - frightned to put my head under water.

I recall having lots of fun here used to go about 3 times a week to swim some training too with school. But at least in those days you could play. bombing your pals, diving in from anywhere, apart from the balcony.Unlike to-day don't jump in, don't dive in, swim in the same direction!!!

Did they remove those pillars? Boys were often told off for running along here, me too, but I cant remember the pillars, though this photo was taken six or seven years before I went there.

I along with many more pupils at The Sacred Heart school Burley Road, were taught to swim here. Once a week we would walk down Willow Road, with our swimming trunks secured in a rolled up towel tucked under our arms. Making the same journey were housewives pushing prams full of washing to use the washhouse housed in the same building as the baths.
