Hello, I am very interested in Worksop history since I've grown up here and me any my friend are intrigued to know whereabouts this pool was? If anybody could give directions for us to 'check out' whereabouts it was, that would be great! We have a rough idea about where we think it's located but we're not sure if it's accurate!
