Baths has reopened to the public after being closed for repairs following a technical issue which caused the pool to empty.

Council contractors have been working to resolve the problem which was caused by a faulty inlet valve which drained the pool overnight on Tuesday 14 April.

During the period of closure, relocated its programmed activity, such as swimming development scheme lessons, to one of its other pools. The unforeseen closure has also allowed to undertake refurbishment work including the repainting of the pool.

Baths was built in 1870. The pool offers a range of activities including aquababes, family swims, 50 plus, aquafit, aqua , swimming lessons, adult only sessions and children’s pool parties.

Nigel Avison, Director of Economy and Culture said: I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding and apologise for any inconvenience caused to users of the baths by the closure. Where possible we have tried to accommodate our programmed activity in another one of our pools, but we now look forward to welcoming everyone back to this fantastic community facility.
