A talk on the history of Woodcock StreetSwimming Baths by local writer Steve Beauchampe

The Woodcock Sports Centre houses Birmingham’s oldest working swimming pool, but the Grade II building we know and love today was not the first baths on the site. The original, Gothic styled building opened in 1860 and provided valuable bathing and washing facilities for local people as well as a swimming pool.

Find out more about this historic building at this free talk which is open to all.
