Haggerston Baths Emily Webber 15 November 2010 Haggerston Some great pics over at http://www.guerillaphotography.fotopic.net of Haggerston Baths “ 14 Comments ewebber 15 November 2010, 9:05 pm oooh or From http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?p=522142“ alexpink 16 November 2010, 9:59 am Good find. I’d love to get in there. traxcitement 7 July 2011, 7:41 am 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.http://www.flickr.com/photos/traxcitement/4401807050/Photo by Traxcitement ewebber 23 August 2011, 5:39 am 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“ traxcitement 23 August 2011, 7:32 am 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 CampaignLast time I passed by the baths the Whiston Road elevation was scaffolded up.” alexpink 23 August 2011, 8:29 am 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. jamieb 23 August 2011, 9:11 am Where are Haggerston Baths exactly? alexpink 23 August 2011, 9:39 am Whiston Rd, near the Acorn pub. jamieb 23 August 2011, 9:52 am Ah yes I see.” ewebber 21 February 2013, 9:32 am Rewed efforts to save the baths are currently going on:http://dalstonist.co.uk/renewed-campaign-to-re-open-haggerston-baths/ traxcitement 21 February 2013, 9:56 pm 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. ewebber 22 February 2013, 7:27 am @traxcitement that would be great, I’d also like a nosey around now 🙂 traxcitement 25 April 2013, 7:26 pm So would I, but I think it is currently deemed unsafe. traxcitement 18 October 2013, 5:40 pm 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.
