Maybe a silly question - but when was the top section removed? I can only remember it being as it is today - I'm a 1963 vintage so going to the Point to swim and remembering it as it is must mean that the top section was removed prior to the mid 60s?

Hi Connor The top part was removed round about 1950 at the same time as the wall was widened one side of the division was for men and the other side for ladies sometimes we would swim under the changing boxes but usually got chased happy days

I can remember when I first started using it in the early 70's the boys still had to use the left hand "poolside" for changing, easy to remember as the water was almost green with algae in it and the girls side (when we did venture over) was always warmer as the sun shone on it

I have to agree with you on this one George it would be better to knock it down.If the council had the best interest of the bathes and town at heart then things would have been sorted long before now. The gate on the bandstand in the park is still missing after 3years, says it all :-c

Pay attention at the back of the class please @=)

Elsewhere on the forum are the posts referring to the restoration/re-use of the baths and if funding comes together that will happen, (note i say "if" either way without funding it can't be knocked down or restored) also the bandstand is due a complete restoration as part of the heritage lottery grant currently being assessed in London.

Next..
