Looking back: Chadderton Baths

I’ve started to organise my photos – of which there are many – and came across these photos of Chadderton Baths before it was sold.

The public swimming baths opened in 1937 and stayed in use until its closure in 2006 following a structural survey which deemed it unsafe for continued use. It was replaced in 2009 by a new £9million ‘wellbeing centre’ at which point the former sports centre adjacent to the old baths was also closed.
