This was to bring baths and clean warm water to many parts of the growing population in the area who had no or ilimited access. The Pools indeed had 'slipper baths' specifically to enable people to have a bath in private.

Forest Hill Pools was home for Linda Lovegrove, Commonwealth Gold Medalist & World Record holder 1962-67.
