Chester U3A outing to Victoria Baths, Manchester on 20 March 2008

Photos and report from Geoffrey Newcombe

The Victoria Baths began its long awaited restoration in 2007. The building is open to visitors during Restoration Phase 1, and is well worth a visit. Warm clothing is recommended! Completion of Phase 1 is due during the summer of 2008. The achievements so far are quite amazing - further information can be found on the Victoria Baths website.

Thanks to Mary Vives and Barbara Wright for organizing the visit (and us!). It was a unique experience and brought back happy (shivering) memories to many of us of time spent in Chester City Baths in our younger days...
