Swimming baths

Disturbing rumour: Hackney Baths (\Kings Hall”) and Britannia pool to be closed and sold for housing development. Can anyone corroborate and would any Councillors care to comment?”


  1. God I hope not, despite my recent problems with better.org i do love my daily swim and although its not the most salubrious of public baths its right on my doorstep.

  2. I asked Rick Muir and he checked and there are no proposals so no plans at the moment.

  3. I’d be amazed, its always very busy.

  4. Let’s hope – it would be remarkably foolish, with elections on the horizon (mind you, once over, all bets are off).
