Regent Place swimming baths

Recently in Memory Lane there have been a few references to the old swimming baths in Regent Place, but until I went digging through our files, I don’t think I’d ever seen this picture of them.

I think the baths closed in 1973 and were demolished not long after, having been replaced by the new Ken Marriott Leisure Centre, which opened that year. Hope it brings back a few memories for anyone who used to swim there.

I am very short of readers’ pictures again, which are always so much more interesting for this page than ones I can unearth in our files. If you have anything that you’d like to have printed - even if it’s not that old, 1980s and 1990s are fine, please get in touch.

If you can scan and email it with a few details that would be great, otherwise, just give me a call to check I’ll be in the office when you’re next in town and I’ll copy it while you wait. Thank you very much.
