Looks great to me. Shame there will be the loss of a public swimming facility, though - has a replacement been built elsewhere?
There’s a brand new swimming pool and leisure centre currently under construction as a replacement.

It's being built across town beside the Sands Centre. I think that the victorian baths which are beside the current swimming pool may be staying as the facility has just had a major refurbishment.

Bit of both. The Sands Leisure Centre has been open since the mid 1980’s. It’s currently undergoing a redevelopment which will incorporate a new swimming facility.

Was on the Station the other day for the first time in a few weeks. I must say, Platforms 1 and 2 look a lot better with their new works (mentioned earlier in this thread). Very neat and smart!

Was browsing the local rag yesterday and stumbled upon this picture in the letters page, it’s an image of the proposed entrance on the swimming pool side:

Platform 1 is now open and in use as is the ‘wrong side’ of P2. The other side of P2 and the south end of P3 have had their coping stones removed in preparation for rebuilding.2F77B72B-1907-4580-9583-2C15B1CE9A3A.jpegBECA8DAC-09A2-47D7-9A1B-FF0FA527A6AA.jpeg5E96C27B-A301-4F64-94FD-80F483BA2781.jpeg5B20A226-D296-49DC-95BC-4E8AF60D5C91.jpeg9FF67C1E-30D6-4F0E-B613-0011E6D8EFE1.jpeg1F625BFE-E458-4FF5-BCAF-2AA23681A26A.jpegC4839F8D-698F-4ABF-8017-931B1ED55F30.jpegF054042A-9F10-429A-8821-3A057F4A50BD.jpeg
