I remember learning to swim here shortly after the building was first opened. I started in then old baths which were closed after this building openend. If I remember right the old baths were then redone and opened up.

I lived in Billinge for a year, while doing a teacher exchange. I would go to the international pool before school. It was a great place to swim. Why did it close? It seemed relatively new.
