Bramley Baths, Broad Lane (Bramley)
Colour image27th September 2012. View of Bramley Baths on Broad Lane showing the boiler house complete with the chimney which remains from the foundry which had previously occupied the site. The Grade II listed baths date from 1904 when as well as a swimming pool, individual public baths were provided for a small charge for the benefit of the many people who did not have bathing facilities in their own homes at the time.

Bramley Baths, Broad Lane (Bramley)
Colour image27th September 2012. View shows Bramley Baths situated on Broad Lane, a public amenity where thousands of Bramley's children have learnt to swim over the years through school swimming lessons or private lessons. Opened in 1904 as a pool and public bath-house, it was built on the site of an old foundry whose chimney still dominates the scene. Now a Grade II listed building, the baths are still in use today after the building was transferred from Leeds City Council in January 2013 to a community-led, not-for-profit Industrial Provident Society. It is now run as a centre for fitness, health and fun, with a public gym, swimming pool, steam rooms and space for meetings and community events.
