Victorian baths get a modern makeover in Camberwell
Victorian baths get a modern makeover
Public baths dating back to 1891 have been reopened following the completion of the first stage of a £4.7m restoration project.

Camberwell Baths in south London has reopened its doors to the public after a long campaign to save the Grade II listed building.

The Victorian building on Artichoke Place now boasts a newly refurbished 25m pool and small learner pool plus new changing areas. The project has protected the heritage of the building while providing fully accessible health and leisure facilities for the local community.

The refurbishment work was designed and managed by Watkins Gray International and by summer 2011, the centre will also feature an expanded health and fitness club. Camberwell Bath Campaign said there was still £1.09m left to raise to build a sports hall which will be the final stage of the project.

Dr Ian Dungavell, director of the Victorian Society, said it was a "victory for local campaigners".

"The threat of closure has hung over this pool for many years but pressure from the Camberwell Baths Campaign and then a commitment from Southwark Council mean the pool now has a future," he added.

The Victorian Society said there were more than 50 listed Victorian and Edwardian pools in the country but only 14 remained in use.

Councillor Lewis Robinson, who is responsible for Southwark's leisure facilities, said the baths provided a "real Olympic legacy".

"Two years ago no-one at the Town Hall believed that Camberwell Baths could be saved," he added.

As well as GP referrals, the centre provides training facilities for one of the UK's top ranking freedivers and an important part of the new project has been to include social spaces for young people.
