mainddee pool

The main pool was 100 feet long by 42 feet wide, having a maximum depth of 10 feet. The bath floor gradually rises from this point to a depth of 4 feet at the shallow end and 8 feet at the deep end. The diving stage had diving boards at heights of five metres, three, and one metres above water level. Comfortable seating accommodated for 428 spectators was provided on the Gala Stands, whilst an additional 300 people was accommodated with chair seating around the balcony, and a further 300 standing at the end of the site is a smaller pool which was 60 feet long by 25 feet wide, having a maximum depth of four feet. This pool was encouraged to non-swimmers from as early an age as possible to provide for school children, and enable swimming instructions to be given to persons of all ages. The baths was fitted with a filtration house and plant which had clerestory windows so that the whole process of filtration can be observed by bathers, which it was felt that this would have a sound psychological value
