The Swimming Pool

A Memory of Burgess Hill

I taught myself to swim here in the 1960s. I remember it used to be 6d to get in and you were given a wire basket to put your clothes in and you changed in the wooden changing rooms. I used to have a shower (cold) before I jumped in so the water felt warm. I must have spent hours in this place and sometimes even had money to buy something from the refreshment kiosk but usually I just swam until I got really hungry and then cycled back home.
