"A Lion in Terracotta. Woolton Village. Taken 20th April 2014."

Woolton Baths, a Victorian pool now under the constant threat of permanent closure, stands in the village and has been used by young and old over many years. A young Beatle swam here, living as he did about ten minutes stroll away. The lions heads feature up the side of the building and are probably not noticed by most, but no buildings erected today have such details as we or rather the architects now prefer clean, sharp lines. I love these though. Mundane, yes I suppose they are, but I would really miss them. The baths hold happy memories for me and many others I’m sure.

A bold detail shot which suits the square crop.

These whimsical details on Victorian buildings fascinate me too, excellent shot. I hope the baths can be kept open.
