Forest Hill Pools near completion

The new pool complex incorporating the old facade and part of the old building

The restored and expanded Forest Hill Pools complex on Dartmouth Road will be opening in early July 2012. The old baths – the oldest surviving Victoria pools in London – was closed in 2006 and threatened with demolition. Here is video with narration by Steve Grindlay on the history of these baths. A campaign to save them was successful and the finishing touches to the new complex are now in progress.
