These images show the first view inside the new £13.5million sports and swimming complex in Blackburn town centre.
The new leisure centre on Feilden Street is a partnership between Blackburn with Darwen Council and Blackburn College
It will provide for students and residents with a larger fitness suite, a dance/ aerobics studio, sauna and steam room and eight games courts. And of course, a new pool and fun slides.
Work on the new pool is progressing well. The pool is built and has been filled with water to check it is water-tight.
The swimming pools will open next year.
