UK Temple Cowley Pools Oxford Aug 16

Recommended Posts

This was the second stop off on a road trip with @CuriousityKilledTheCat, @Biebs and a non OS member.

 

We met up @stoozie there (massive thanks for the tour :P ) 

 

After navigating through a maze of underground pipes we were finally greeted with the pools, and what a site it was! 

this place was amazing, complete with a massive diving section. 

 

Enjoy :thumb

Right on my doorstep but being rumbled by the police there in January made me give it a wide berth, need to get it done I think. I have fond and not so fond memories of school swimming lessons being held there when I was in my first school.

That's cool! Why did it close? Be nice to have a bit of history :) the place looks in good condition, No damage or graf either.. Great pics :thumb

not entirely sure why it closed, all I can find is that it was closed in December 2014 for redevelopment as housing. It first opened in 1938, and had a major refit in 1987. Its main pool was 25 metres long, it also housed a baby pool and a diving pool. It was built on the site of part of a former Knights Templar estate.
