Day 11 === The Educational Eleventh

Up the top of the road to Broomhill Pool as part of Heritage Open Days. First time through the gates for many years. Took lots of photos and will put a selection on the web later this week.

Place is in a right state, as you'd expect from somewhere that's not had any maintenance for the past three years. Weeds everywhere and some very unwelcoming water in the actual pools.

Still, the Save Broomhill Pool campaigners were most welcoming and upbeat, giving balloons to the kids and leaflets to the grown-ups. Who knows whether it really is feasible to do it up: the costs given in the local paper vary wildly, and as they point out, nobody would build a swimming pool on the side of a hill these days.
