Brine memories: building the new brine baths – remembering the old

Saturday 14 July 10:30-16:30 outside the Heritage Centre

Share your memories with us … and we will share some pure and precious Droitwich Salt with you!


The town is very excited that we have permission to plan for new Brine Baths in the Lido Park, after a long campaign by SOBBs (Save Our Brine Baths). We at SOBBs are very conscious of how precious our heritage is – and we are embarking on a project to record some oral histories of people who used to work at the old Brine Baths or were regular users of them. The project will also involve working with schools in the area.

We would like to invite anyone with memories of the baths – maybe as a pool attendant, therapist, cleaner, administrator or as a patient or guest using the baths on a regular basis – to come and share a few of those memories with us at our stand on Saturday 14 July between 10.30 a.m. and 4.30 p.m. In return, we’ll tell you of our plans for the return of the Brine Baths and share with you some Droitwich Salt.
