When this does happen, you'll have to confirm whether there really is another empty swimming pool under the temporary floor in Gym as I was always told when I learnt to swim and swan for Birkenhead swimming club there.

When I had swim lessons there in the late 60s early 70s there were two pools...one called the family pool and the other was more for serious swimmers ...they held the gala's and sports events there etc.

But this pool was also temporary boarded over a few nights a week for badminton tennis and basket ball teams etc. It was usually opened up again at weekends.

I had heard that years later they only used one pool and it was the serious or gala pool..the one with seats all around it. The family pool I was told was boarded over...maybe it is this you are referring to!

update
managed to get hold of chap I've been speaking to about a visit.
He said he'd emailed me but I haven't seen it.
Basically he's said he could arrange a visit or two, not too many folks at once and only during the day not a saturday or sunday.
available for daytime visit list
