Haggerston Baths

Some great pics over at http://www.guerillaphotography.fotopic.net of Haggerston Baths


  1. Good find. I’d love to get in there.

  2. It seems that despite a £5 million grant from the Government’s Dept for Children, Schools and families, the council are still short of the required amount to refurbish the baths. A doctors surgery, hydrotherapy pool, youth and sports facilities are planned alongside the restored swimming pool. The site will continue to be mothballed and guarded.

  3. Haggestron baths

    I stumbled across this on New London Architecture

    “BDP are commissioned for the conservation and creative adaptation of the Grade II Listed Haggerston Baths for the London Borough of Hackney….”

    Exciting news read more here: http://www.newlondonarchitecture.org/project.php?id=1081&name=haggerston_baths

  4. With the regeneration of the Kingsland & Haggerston Estates and nearby Bridge Academy a facility like the one proposed should be hugely beneficial to the local residents and schools and would see the historic building restored and reused. They were a long way off the funds required to do the work in recent reports.
    BDP are the same Architects that did Bridge Academy and when I visited last year the Architect did mention that they were involved with the Baths.
    A campaign to get the swimming pool reopened has been going on since it closed in 2000 Haggerston Pool Campaign
    Last time I passed by the baths the Whiston Road elevation was scaffolded up.”

  5. Potentially good news then. Apparently something similar is happening to Poplar baths. I’d love to have a look around both before they (if) are restored.

  6. Where are Haggerston Baths exactly?

  7. Whiston Rd, near the Acorn pub.

  8. Rewed efforts to save the baths are currently going on:http://dalstonist.co.uk/renewed-campaign-to-re-open-haggerston-baths/

  9. I hope one day I will be able to swim here again, I thought London Fields Lido would never open again and look at that pool now.

  10. @traxcitement that would be great, I’d also like a nosey around now 🙂

  11. So would I, but I think it is currently deemed unsafe.

  12. Troubled Waters: Haggy Baths is in tonight’s Evening Standard as one of 10 most endangered Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England as nominated by members of the public.
