It has been an amazing few months for London swimmers. With the reopening of the lido in Uxbridge, Marshall Streeet back in business and even Kentish Town pool back in action.
Now the Londonist is reporting that Forest Hills pool (reputedly one of the oldest pools in London) is going to be redeveloped. http://londonist.com/2010/08/forest_hill_pools_redevelopment_pla.php
The £10 million redevelopment will see the Victorian baths adjoined by a new brick building with a zinc-clad roof, which will contain a new 25m pool, gym, and cafe.
It seems like all that hard work campaigners put in a few years back is really paying off.
