Hackney Public Baths

Location: 39 Lower Clapton Road, Hackney, London E5 0NU, England

 

From The 1000 Year Swim:

 

"Public swimming pool and baths. 1894-97. By Edward Harnor and Frederick Pinches. Portland stone front with slate roof ...

 

A major programme of modernisation was carried out in the early 1990s. The baths retain numerous features of interest as well as a handsome frontage, and are listed as a building of special interest, embodying late Victorian civic concern for the promotion of cleanliness and fitness."
