Smallthorne Open Air Swimming Pool

This wonderful photograph of Smallthorne Open Air Swimming Pool was sent to use by Jean and Phill who has kindly given permission to include it on the site.

She also shared the following memory with us “I was born in the late 1940’s so my only memories of the Smallthorne baths were in the mid fifties when they were in a state of dereliction. Some tiles remained and a large recess in the ground where the pool would have been. As small kids my friends and I used to dig up “pig nuts” ( the edible bulbous root of a weed) on the surrounding wasteland there.”
