I always reckoned the Derby to be even colder than Hoylake.

I didn't go to Hoylake Baths much. I too found it frigid and there was something very old about it. The Derby was cold too but at you could bake upstairs. The NB pool was a mile above any other. In retrospect. The Best Days of My Life.

Hoylake baths always seemed shady and cold when I went as child /young adult, although didn't go too many times to that one. Didn't like New Brighton, seemed too vast.Loved Harrison Drive (Derby). Cold but as softshoes says, jolly hot on the veranda. Lovely sun tans! Then a group of us into the sandhills afterwards, to sing along to a guitar.
They'd be moved on now for causing unnecessary noise or be under suspicion for loitering! It was a carefree life we had.
Feel sorry for the youngsters these days.

It closed finally in 1981 but had almost closed in 1977 and was saved by local residents getting together and keeping it going.

I would have thought that the cold water would have precluded any amorous shenanigans.
