Bramley Baths: Making a splash in pictures

5 October 2015

Bramley Baths is buzzing at the moment. Here’s our photo gallery – featuring images by the fantastic Lizzie Coombes and Courtney Harrison – featuring some of the splashtacular activities which take place at the community-owned Edwardian baths.

Our main photo (above) features one of the new activities set up at the Baths this year – aqua zumba,
following in the footsteps of the hugely popular zumba classes. It’s led by Jennie Ashton, a West Leeds treasure who motivates everyone she meets.
