Information

"During the second world war troops were stationed in the Derby area. In 1944 Corporal Frost came up with the idea of building a swimming pool. With the help of two others it was built and although small, mainly due to the lack of suitable materials, was very popular. Filled with water from the bore it catered for officers during part of the day and other ranks for the balance of the day.The pool, though now in poor condition, is one of the few remaining reminders of those years when the troops were stationed in the area."
