A caretaker in blue overalls and a male, who misjudged his landing when diving from the balcony snapping his neck, are among the many spirits wandering this lovely old baths in the twilight hours.

Originally constructed by a wealthy mill owner William Laverton, since opening its doors to the public in 1888, Westbury pool is thought to be the  oldest working public pool. Not only was this building  being used as a pool during this era, in former years it has also been a billetting station for WW1 soldiers as well as being used for dances during the winter months when it was considered too cold to swim (there was a suspended floor which would be pulled out covering the unheated pool. This wonderful Victorian building, is not only busy with activity during the daytime hours, it's just as active once the lights go out also. Members of staff and visitors alike have all on numerous occasions reported strange goings on in these buildings with full bodied apparitions being seen.

Given the fact that Westbury is believed to be located on a number of ley lines as well as the building housing a large amount of water (spirits are said to be attracted by water) is it any surprise that so much activity has been experienced here? Full bodied apparitions are seen poolside. Another male in blue overalls believed to be the old caretaker George has also been seen walking throughout the building including the female changing rooms. Locker doors swing open by themselves  / lights turn themselves on and off and staff and visitors have all reported being pushed by unseen hands, some into the pool itself. What with these experiences and the dark shadows seen by many, what will you experience?
