The Abbey pool complex includes two swimming pools, an outdoor interactive splashpad, recently refurbished gym, sauna, astroturf pitch and grass football pitches.
The complex is managed by GLL in partnership with the Council.
We occasionally need to close some of our parking areas. When we do, we'll let you know, as early as possible, in the red service announcement box in the right hand column (or below if viewing on a mobile), as well as via our Twitter and Facebook pages.

The complex is fully accessible, with level access throughout the ground floor and a lift to the gym on the first floor.
Two of the three changing rooms and shower facilities are built directly on the poolside. Each changing room has drop-down changing beds and one has a fully automated shower bed and hoist.
Access to both pools is available via a fixed hoist, and the learner pool also has gradual steps with handrails.
