    Golden Lane Bath & Wash House
    An ancestor of mine, Joseph Beach, was the propietor of this wash house near the Barbican, London at the time of the 1881 census. I would really like to know more about it and what it was like around this time. Malcolm Lee

    I remember Hounslow Baths being one of the scariest experiences of my childhood. The stark Victorian coldness of the place was enough to scare any child. The changing booths were situated around the pool, so once I had changed into my swimming gear, the pool was a few feet away. I always feared being pushed in. Frightening!

    My family (parents, sister and myself) used Hornsey Road Baths in Islington until 1960, when we moved from the area.
    I remember going to the swimming pool at the baths with my school.

      Hi M Avis
      I am writing a history of Park Road Lido for Hornsey Historical Society which includes local baths such as the Hornsey High Street Baths.
      If you are happy to chat to me about your family experience at Hornsey High St Baths please contact me on the above email address.
      Many thanks.
      Best wishes
