Cleveland Baths, Hampton Row, Bath - Bath and North East Somerset (UA)

Dating from 1815, Cleveland Baths are believed to be the oldest surviving public outdoor swimming pools in England. A diminutive Georgian crescent houses the changing rooms and Caretaker's Cottage. Listed Building Consent was granted in April 2017 for a scheme of repair and renovation works that will enable the baths to be re-opened for use. The Cleveland Pools Trust have confirmed their intention to continue with a further Heritage Lottery Fund bid to finance the works after an application was rejected in December 2017.
