White Rock Baths - above ground complex

World-class BMX and skate facility on seafront

After 17 years lying vacant, a £1.17m funding package is now in place to renovate the White Rock Baths and convert it into a world class BMX and skateboarding facility. Hastings Borough Council (HBC) will soon start work to restore the huge but near-derelict old baths under the promenade to make the building usable, following which it will be fitted out by the instigators of the project, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.

White Rock Baths, past and present

The White Rock Baths on Hastings seafront have been derelict for a number of years; although subjected to regular vandalism and allowed to deteriorate, this underground labyrinth still reveals poignant signs of its past incarnations, when it contained two swimming pools, a Turkish Bath and both roller and ice-skating rinks. Intrigued and captivated by derelict buildings, Hastings-based Brian Rybolt, a photographer for over 45 years, is exhibiting a captivating series of photographs of the White Rock Baths at Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. HOT’s Zelly Restorick went to the exhibition and met up with Brian to talk about his fascination with decaying buildings.
