When they demolished the Pavillion there was plenty of mine workings found Including workings there was no record of going back hundreds of years. What a great looking building the Pavillion was Alas demolished (Like all the other buildings) to make way for the "International Olympic Size Swimming Baths" Well... the "International Olympic size ,( less 2" ) Swimming Baths. Soon to be demolished.. Enough said!!!!!!
