Hughenden Memorial PoolPrint Page
The Memorial Pool was erected to commemorate those who served in World Wars One and Two.
The foundation stone for the war memorial swimming pool which cost £19,500 was to be laid during the Jubilee celebrations held in June 1951. During a special Town Council meeting held in January 1955 the council discussed the preparation of a brochure from the artists impression and that pool be opened to public subscription as a war memorial.
