London’s other great indoor swimming pool re-opens

Media_httpstaticguimc_qruyq

Today is the day that after 13 years Marshall Street baths (Soho’s swimming pool) finally reopens http://ashleynorris.posterous.com/marshall-street-baths-sohos-iconic-swimming-p . There is however another classic old school London baths that is back in business and that is the Kenitsh Town baths. I used to woork ronf the corner from the baths in the early 90s and can confirm it was a real hole. It was apparently quite a regular occurrence for people to have lockers broken into and their clothes nicked. The revamped pool looks great and probably cost a fraction of what Hackney paid for my local baths Clissold.

The interior certainly looks very lovely. Maybe Irongmongers Row will get a makeover next.
