Pictures from inside glorious old Milton Keynes swimming pool Dolphin Splashdown before it was demolished against residents wishes

Dolphin Splashdown in Milton Keynes was so popular a campaign was launched to stop it being demolished to make way for a supermarket.

That campaign proved fruitless, though, and the iconic building at Shenley Church End was knocked down before being turned into a Sainsbury's supermarket. Not before a host of brilliant and nostalgic pictures were taken of the inside of Dolphin Splashdown, though. Dive into a bit of history and check out these amazing images from inside one of THE MK leisure destinations of yesteryear.
