It’s certainly easier to pull down a swimming pool than it is to agree to build a new one. Here’s hoping that the vigour in bulldozing the old pool at Clap’ham Manor Street can be met with the same zeal, once construction work commences on Future Clap’ham.
I shall miss Clap’ham Manor. There remains some unique character about the old building, even it its last death throws. It’s breaks my heart to look back at images of the lovely old pool.
Here be the old reception area, the scene on my 7am smiles (and slight flirtations) with the lovely GLL receptionist staff. If you find a fiver lost underneath all the rubble, um, it’s mine.
Judging by the speed of the destruction, it can’t be long until the main pool is plundered next. Here’s hoping they haven’t forgotten to pull the plug.
