Brighouse swimming pool – Brighouse – November 2012

Opened in 1913 Brighouse swimming pool was closed in June 2006 after glass fell from the roof and in to the pool, this was down to deterioration of the hundred year old building.
As well as requiring extensive works to the roof of the pool in Mill Royd Street a detailed routine survey revealed serious problems with the pool’s filtration and ventilation systems. Heating, hot and cold water installations and drainage are among other items which need to be addressed.
Calderdale Council’s cabinet member for community services, Amanda Byrne, said spending money on the pool now would be a serious and unacceptable waste of public money.
In 2009 it was announced that a new gym and swimming pool was to be built on land near the police station, in late 2010 the new facilities were opened to the public. This site looks to be redeveloped in the near future by the climbing gym Rokt.
