When I first moved to New Ferry 22 years ago, and bought my house which is built on the site of the former swimming pool, I recall a neighbour from Merseybank Road showing me some photos of the pool complex as Wimpey's bulldozers moved in to start demolishing it circa 1986/7. I remember he told me that the pool had actually closed in "1977". However, more recently, a few people have contradicted this and suggested it was 1979, 1980 or even 1981 when the pool closed for the last time. Can anyone please give me further information/clarification?
