The Sugar Bowl Swimming Pool

A Memory of Burgh Heath

The Sugar Bowl was always an open air pool and never an indoor one. We considered this pool 'posh' probably as it was more expensive than The Galleon, but it was nice to swim there as a treat. I now live in Somerset with family in Banstead but I understand the Galleon is no longer in existence but what about the Surrey Yeoman? That was my watering hole when it was run by Oscar Collier and his son Richard (Dick).
