1898 – School & Swimming Baths, Chesterfield, Derbyshire

Architect: A. Hessell Tiltman & Cecil Jackson


“The building shown by the view and groundplan illustrated in this issue is now in course of erection for the Chesterfield School Board, from the designs and under the superintendence of Mr. A. Hessell Tiltman, F.R.LP..A., London, and Mr. W. Cecil .Tackson, of Chesterfield, as joint architects. A feature of some novelty in the scheme is the provision of swimming and ablutionary baths specially arranged for the duly regulated use of the scholars, and otherwise occasionally by the outside public. This is below the school. The accommodation is for 1,191 children — the infant section on the ground floor, and a mixed school over — on the first floor. The materials used are Ellistown bricks for the facings, with dressings of Peasonhurst stone and terracotta : roofs are slated ; floors are of steel and breeze concrete, finished with wood-block flooring, and there is the usual proportion of glazed brick dadoes, &c. “
