Sport / activity


Forest Hill Pools opened in 1885, but in 2006 the London Borough of Lewisham was forced to close the pools because of health and safety concerns.

The council demolished and rebuilt the pool halls while keeping the original Victorian frontage intact.  

The new community facility has separate 25 metre swimming pools and a health and fitness suite, which was carefully integrated within the conserved Victorian Pool Superintendent’s building.
