Jacob’s Well Baths


Once again we re taking part on Doors Open Days Saturday September 15th and Sunday September 16th, 10 to 5. Tours at 11,12,1,2,3,and 4.

We are Venue 33. Which door will you come through- MENS WARM BATHS AND SWIMMING BATHS or LADIES WARM BATHS? Lights are usually off when you pass this Victorian Queen Anne Revival Grade 2 listed building. Built in grand style for working poor, it probably influenced the style of later pools nationally. Read more history on our website

See the new banner produced by Craft Hub, Saving the Baths Just in Time.

See the fragile glazed roofs. Spot the leaks. See everything it is safe to see: cavernous pool hall with sprung hardwood floor and pool still underneath,

warm baths areas. Probably not yet the boiler room where spring water was stored in overhead cast iron tanks. Hear about its urgent restoration.


Last year 700 people came.  We are in need of volunteers to help make everyone’s experience fun.  Please contact  me if you are willing to help out for an hour or so
