Can anyone definitively confirm when the E&C leisure centre pool closed, and why?

I was told that some of the roof fell in which made them close it, but haven't got an exact date - must be around 10 years ago

It was definitely more than a decade ago.

More like late 80s / early 90s I think.

I seem to recall something about a rodent infestation.

Sorry to contradict you james but both my children had swimming lessons there so it was that long ago although I can not be exact it was no earlier than 1998.

It was closed down on the spot after a health and safety inspection. Faults included the ceiling panels falling down (which may have contained asbestos) rats and cockroach infestation.
