I remember it. We used to bunk in through the hedge and spend all day there. Packed off by our mums with jam butties and a drink and no money to get in. There was a Baby pool which was shallow enough to walk right acroos, it was only up to your knees. The middle pool (the tip-toe pool, cos i had to tip-toe to keep my head above the water) and then a swimmers only pool.... for swimmers not splashers. There was a slide and diving boards, 3 of them i think. Huge and freezing cold changing rooms. Dont ever remember seeing a lifeguard. But the water, my god, it could only have been colder if they had an iceberg floating in it. But i lived to tell the tale.

Aaaahhh yes chalky white we used to call him. I actually passed my first certificate with him by walking along the bottom of the centre pool.
No wonder the place shut down, no one seemed to pay. i had a yearly pass and i'd still bunk in, either through the fence in the park or over the hospital wall!

I remember them being there yes but never went. I do however remember going to Port Sunlight Baths. Were the summers warmer back then or did we just think they were?
