About the event
HISTORY OF SMETHWICK BATHS
Smethwick was built in 1933 and is a Grade II listed building. It's intended purpose was that of a public swimming pool, known then as Thimblemill Baths. During World War II, the baths were used as an air raid shelter - of which 80 local people were killed and many others were injured. They were all taken to the baths for their protection. A temporary morgue was set up in the building. 300 bodies were discovered in a plague pit when the baths were being built. They remain in their original resting place today, 10ft beneath the bath’s reception.
After World War II, the baths were also used for hairdressing, boxing and dancing. During winter months, the pool was covered over and used for music concerts - Famous bands to play at the baths included The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Small Faces and The Kinks.
A heavy wooden table was allegedly thrown at a group of female investigators. Equipment has been switched off during the night. Perfume smelled. People feel their hands being held, apparently by Emily (an 8 year old girl). Strong smell of death experienced in the morgue area. Sudden temperature drops. Sickness and overwhelming sadness felt by people standing near the body chute to the morgue. ull bodied apparitions. Wet footprints seen in the changing rooms when opening up in the morning. Strange lights seen. Unexplained mist seen. There is a man in a boiler suit with red hair seen in the subways and converses regularly with people who mistake him for a site worker. Reports of a woman in RAF uniform seen in the ladies toilets.
