Many organisations have expressed interest in the Ladywell Old Baths/Play Tower since it was named as one of the Victorian Society’s 2015 Top Ten Endangered Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England and Wales.
Having lain empty for over 10 years significant investment will be needed to bring the building back into use.
The Trust is aware of a number of proposals for reusing the building. These include a swimming pool/gym, climbing centre, research centre, incubator business space, cafe, restaurant, dance rehearsal space, and a cinema.
At the Ladywell Assembly on 27th January the Council indicated it would, within six weeks, begin a procurement process to decide which of the organisations proposing to refurbish and reuse the building it wishes to partner with.
