Carlisle: James Street: plans:
the cooling-room area and ground floor

Plan of the cooling-room area

This part of the ground floor plan shows the cooling-room, labelled Lounge on the plan. Bathers entered centre left into a relaxation area where there were tables and chairs at which they could sit and read newspapers and magazines, or have a drink and light refreshments after their bath.

Lining the walls on either side of the central plunge pool are changing cubicles, with couches for resting. At the end of the room, on each side of the pool, is a door leading to the entrance to the pool, the Russian steam bath, and the hot rooms. It is not possible to enter the pool from the cooling-room itself.
