Affordable homes have been built in Long Eaton at the site of a former swimming pool.

Futures Homescape joined with Erewash Borough Council to create the six homes on the site of a former swimming pool in Stanhope Street.

The pool, which was built in 1900, has been derelict since 2004 and was previously used by the town’s board schools.

Sophie Whitehead, 21, who has recently moved in to one of the new homes with her partner,said: “The bond to rent somewhere privately was too expensive so if it wasn’t for this, we’d still have to live with my parents, which - with an eight-month-old baby - isn’t ideal.”
