Inside eerie abandoned 145-year-old swimming pool including headless mannequins

A YouTuber who travels up and down the country documenting his visits to abandoned urban locations paid a visit to an old swimming pool in Glasgow – and the photos he took inside are not for the faint-hearted.

On a trip to Scotland, Kyle Urbex from Leeds decided to visit Glasgow and head to the derelict annex swimming baths and gymnasium complex of the former Bellahouston Academy in Cessnock.

Built in 1875, the former pool and gym was built alongside the original school building and is set to be demolished to make way for a block of 39 new flats for social rent, which was given the green light last year, GlasgowLive reports.

The urban explorer managed to make his way inside the building through an open window to do some exploring and captured some striking images during his visit.

Pictures show the former pool in its decaying state, eerily surrounded by dozens of broken mannequins lying sprawled in the empty pool and in the seating area overlooking it.

Many of the mannequins are headless.

If that wasn't spooky enough, another photo shows a pool of red water that looks scarily like blood at the bottom of the pool.

Kyle Urbex has visited almost 400 abandoned buildings and sites across the UK in the last year.

In another urban exploring mission, YouTuber Ste G went on an adventure around the abandoned buildings of Derbyshire which are rich in history, having been used for everything from wire works to holding German prisoners.

It's believed the first stop on his mission was Oakhurst House, which first opened in 1867 as a wire works by Richard Johnson and his nephew.

Posting pictures of his find in Abandoned Places UK, Ste said: "In the middle of the woods was an awesome place once but bad fire damage," and fans could not get enough.

One said: "I've been here a couple of times, including the factories. I searched for info on this place after visiting as I saw it sat there as I was on the main road so I took the car for a climb…"

Another added: "Absolutely stunning place! Would love to have seen it back in its glory days."
