Meeting with theoss and Sandman on what was probably the wettest day of the year so far, it was only right that we chose a site which was potentially just as wet indoors as it was outside, with torrents of rain streaming through the roof and down the walls.:thumb

The building itself is 1930s and comprises a main pool and a kiddie pool. And lots of lost property. Sandman found a pair of bikini bottoms with a big brown streak down the gusset. I gagged.:mad:

There's a lovely site with what the place used to look like at http://www.robbirrell.com/durhamcitybaths/. It doesn't look like that anymore.

The kiddie's pool has been turned into a meeting place for the local Brain Trust:


The local kids have emptied the entire contents of the offices and store cupboards into the pool.


Which was a good thing, because otherwise it would have taken ages to find THE RESCUSICI-ANNE FACE, a.k.a. the wrongest thing ever:ohmy. (sorry SM had to steal your pic)


But it's still a nice little explore. Don't think the wet helped my embryonic cold, though. Stuck in bed with the lemsip now. Ho hum.:wflag
