The Turkish baths suite was next to the slipper baths. There were twelve baths for men and another twelve for women, an unusual example of a local authority providing the same number of baths for each sex.

These were included in the plans after the Ministry of Health public local enquiry into the proposal to build the baths learned that there were approximately 1,500 houses within a radius of one mile from the site of the baths which still, in 1936, had no fixed baths.
