Bristol North Baths building for sale

May 29 2018

The former Bristol North Baths building has been put up for sale by Bristol City Council.

 The Grade II listed building is advertised through agents Alder King who are seeking offers for the freehold interest with vacant possession.

The building on Gloucester Road, dating from 1915, was developed in recent years with a view to becoming a medical facility with a hydrotherapy unit. Following disputes with the developer work stopped before the project was completed in 2016. Work on flats and the Bishopston Library next door was completed but the former swimming baths have remained empty.

Physiotherapist Keith James, who runs practices in Westbury Park and Clifton, was involved with the previous project and said: “The building is close to completion but needs a significant investment to get it finished.  

“Once it’s completed it will be a great facility for the area.

“I am still interested, especially if it became a medical facility. I’ve invested a lot of time, money and effort into the planning design of the centre, especially the design of the hydrotherapy unit. I’ve put so much time and effort into it that I would like to see it out.”
