Artefacts

Community Group

Haggerston Pool, located in the London Borough of Hackney, was opened in 1904 but was closed and has remained derelict since February 2000. The Save Haggerston Pool community action group aims to reopen the baths to the public.

The building boasts Grade II listing by the Victorian Society. It is listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) by Hackney Council in London.

Maintenance

To enable the community group to coordinate their campaign, the site is built on the WordPress content management system, enabling the site to be easily updated without technical intervention.
