Fancy a swim? Unfortunately you’re in the wrong place for that, at least for now anyway. Save Haggerston Pool is a community campaign set up to bring life and water back to our local pool. We’ve been around since the pool closed in the year 2000 gathering the skills and support of a large group of people who refuse to hang up their goggles. Read the latest news from Save Haggerston Pool.
The building itself is unmistakably beautiful. With its glazed barrel-vaulted roof and palatial façade, it boasts Grade II listing. The pool was originally designed by Architect Alfred Cross to provide bathing facilities for the local community. It has recently been recognised as being of significant value by the Victorian Society, who placed it in the top ten of their 2013 at-risk list.
The history of the building is of huge interest to many people but the real excitement surrounds it’s future. A number of local schools and community groups have shown massive interest in this facility, with an ever-expanding group of enthusiastic local residents, the pool is ready to spring back to life as the beating heart of Haggerston.
