Carlisle: James Street:
the cold plunge pool
from the top of the steps

The plunge pool, seen from the steps

A photograph of the plunge pool that is different from most others. Taken from the end of the cooling-room it shows the view from the top of the steps looking down into the pool. There are some window reflections from above, but also, unusually, we see the reflection of the stained glass panel on the door from the lobby to the hot rooms.
