Whilst cycling up to see an upholsterer in Crouch End, it was great to see that the Horsey Road Baths & Laundry sign is back after a major redevelopment of the site. The iconic swimmer looks better than ever.
When it was built in 1895, this was the largest complex of its kind in the UK, with four swimming pools, 125 slipper baths, a public washhouse and a laundry. Today it has been transformed into 200+ flats, a nursery, a community space and 40,000sq ft of new offices for Islington council.
It's good to see life back in this old building again.
