This programme looks at the history of Monument Road Baths in Ladywood and the development of the replacement, Ladywood Leisure Centre. The original baths dates back to 1883 and was rebuilt at the outbreak of WWII. The much loved baths was closed in 1992, demolished in 1994 and now the third baths, on the same site, is due to open exactly 25 years since the demolition of the previous premises.
The story of the baths is told in Ladywood History Group’s latest publication, ‘In At The Deep End’. email firstname.lastname@example.org for details. The 32 page A5 book is due to be launched during Birmingham Heritage Week at Spring Hill Library at 2.30pm Friday 13 September 2019. Hope to see you there!
