Brackley old pool

Brackley Old pool – So the old swimming pool is no more!!
What will become of the land?
Who does it belong too – Brackley Town?
Which Council – Town, SNC or County has control?
Time will tell as always!
It’s probably a big job to empty the water as it chlorinated
and there is a lot of rubble too!!

There is a lovely new shop in Manor Road

Manor Carpets & Flooring – we wish them a great success.

And a fresh now sign for ‘Brackley Butchers’
