Rare old pictures give a glimpse inside iconic former Sheffield swimming pool and Turkish Baths

Sheffield’s iconic Glossop Road Baths has been a landmark in the city centre for about 150 years.

The swimming pool and Turkish Baths opened in 1877 and thousands upon thousands of Sheffielders have been in the water over the decades.

It closed in 1990 after 127 years but re-opened in 2004 as SPA 1877.

News broke this week that the spa is now set to reopen more than two years after it was closed.

So we are taking the opportunity to delve into the archives to take a look at how Sheffielders have enjoyed the venue down the years.
