These photos were taken recently bySteve Lovegrove (photographer)and show the old Royal Derwent Pool a bit run down but still very usable if give some TLC. It’s pretty encouraging to see that it’s not totally vandalized like the rest of WCC & RDH hopefully one day it will be in service again.
I remember swimming here during the winter when the New Norfolk Olympic Pool was closed. The RDH pool was so hot and the change rooms were like a Sauna. I remember we also had the key to the pool we paid a small fee which allowed us access when ever we wanted.
I also remember doing a charity thing there once where we swam a full 24 hours non stop taking turns. It was a pretty cool event. I remember sleeping in the library/games room.
