Going Swimmingly

We have enjoyed a busy and involving week at South Somerset District Council Community Heritage Access Centre, near Yeovil.

One of the highlights was our recent Photo Afternoon on the subject of schools. During the 2-hour time slot, three people attended and the subject of swimming pools came up with memories of the Yeovil pool completed in 1963.

We had available a photograph album showing the construction of this pool around 1961, with many local landmarks, including Douglas Seaton’s white tower, in the background.

One of these images is reproduced below – showing the “North End of Site – 31st August 1961.”

We would be grateful to hear from anyone with photographs of this swimming pool – inside or out!

We also welcomed 17 members of the Mid-Somerset Curators and Archivists Group on Thursday – many for the first time. A report back on this great occasion in our next BLOG – including the Somerset Relief Map as one of the highlights!
