BATH HOUSE see EDENSIDE BATH HOUSE

BATHS
Foundation stone laid 04.09.1883; opened 31.07.1884; when opened the baths comprised ladies private baths and the ladies plunge bath, 29 feet by 16 feet and beyond that the second class plunge baths, 65 feet by 30 feet. Opposite these were the first class plungs baths, 60 feet by 30 feet flanked by second class private baths. Extensions were made between 1928 - 1932 when 15 feet was added to the length of one of the pools, making it the existing [in 1958] length of 75 feet. Commemorative foundation stone of new baths laid 17.11.1974; new baths opened officially 17th November 1975. This new 33 and one third metre pool was in a new building adjacent to the existing baths site. Phase two was to be the revitalisation of the ‘old’ baths. 14th October 1977 the new ten metre pool for mothers and toddlers opened in the second phase of the baths redevelopment. This second phase also included a new 20 metre pool. In 2008 Carlisle still has the same three pool baths arrangement.
