Denton's swimming pool was where I learned to swim. But in recent years it's 1970s pool was shabby and a mess. Cue a brand new and impressively swanky replacement facility, the Tameside Wellness Centre.
Nearly forty years after its last proper swimming pool closed its doors, Hyde - the town I grew up in - now has a brand new six lane swimming pool. When the venue of my normal Monday swim was abruptly closed, I booked in and went to check it out.
