  1. I am planning to get to this one, it takes in Ernö Goldfinger’s Haggerston School, Haggy Pool (hopefully will one day be restored), Adelaide Wharf and Bridge Academy. It will also pass through Fellows Court which featured in the Mike Leigh film ‘Meantime’ starring Phil Daniels, Tim Roth and Gary Oldman.

  2. Sounds good, do you know if you get to go inside the baths building?

  3. I wouldn’t think you would be able to access any of the buildings on the tour, I would love to have a look inside the baths. I last went inside when I did the Swimathon in the early 90’s, I would imagine it is pretty run down inside now.

  4. Good tour around Haggy yesterday around 50 people turned up causing a roadblock in some places! The Hackney Society have now produced a guide leaflet so that anyone can do the tour at any time. Highlights of Haggerston
