Bramley Baths hosts heritage talk with a real splash

5 September 2019

Pack your swimming goggles and dive in for a history talk with a difference – in a West Leeds swimming pool!

Take in Bramley Baths’ Edwardian finery while board member John Battle guides you through the fascinating history of the Baths’ Grade II Listed building.

The talk is part of the national Heritage Open Days events running across the country and taps into the theme of ‘people power’. Mr Battle said:

“Here at Bramley Baths we particularly fit into the ‘people power’ theme following our successful community-led takeover of the Baths from Leeds City Council back in 2013.

“We’re a great example of how ‘people power’ can bring about change in our communities.”

The event, which is free, will not only feature a talk from Mr Battle but also provide a chance to have a swim.

Bramley: The People Powered Baths runs on Sunday, September 22, 12.30pm-1.30pm. Booking in advance is essential as places are limited. Call 0113 256 0949 or call in to reception to reserve a free place.
