We delved into the Echo archives to find these photographs of Dawdon pit pool in the 1970s.

We have got scenes from 1974 and 1975 as well as one photo showing a swimming gala with lots of spectators looking on in 1957.

So if you remember the days of Dawdon’s pit pool, take a look through our selection.
