Whats the highest board you dived off? I only managed 3rd
I have fond memories of the Empire pool; getting kicked out for jumping feet first off the top board, seeing Colin Jackson’s knob in the showers and once having a poo in the deep end!

Same here about getting kicked out for jumping off top board. Mind you there was no pooing from me for about a week, as it took that long to remove my trunks from up my bum.

i jumped off top once, I did manage a dive off 4th the one time - never again. I remember my brother regularly diving off top and once he waved to me as he passed me on the way down.

Old cooling tower being demolished in the old power station on Newport rd/Colchester ave, which was originally built to provide power for the tram and trolley bus systems, but was upgraded in the 1930’s to a general power station

I was there

My Dad's office was nearby (opposite from where Mothercare and Argos is now) and he took me along to watch it. I had a ringside seat and took a B&W photo of it

No, it was a dirty protest for them closing the pool for cleaning 10 mins after we arrived.

They certainly had something to clean that day!
