Behind front range and side wall is the swimming bath, on two sides of which are galleries supported on chamfered wooden posts and with cast-iron balustrades and glazed canopies with king-post trusses. The galleries are partly glazed, the glazing has margin panes and panelled risers. On the SW side there is a row of wooden cubicles with panelled fronts, boarded partitions and a camopy over.
