In September 1881,

A private meeting of the supporters of the scheme for converting the premises in Grange-road, at present occupied by Mr Robertson as Turkish baths, was held at the office of Mr J R Stubbs, on Monday afternoon. The scheme embraces the construction of a swimming bath 54ft x 22ft and is meant to supply the universally acknowledged want of such a convenience in the town. The meeting unanimously agreed to support the scheme, and a limited company, with a capital of £2,500, divided into 500 shares of £5 each, will at once be registered to carry the scheme into effect.

Although a local newspaper1†reported that,the company was given a registration number, nothing further seems to have happened. The following year Mr Robertson sold the baths to John Holman and they remained under private ownership.
