    swimming baths to koi pond

    hi
    do i remember someone saying a swimming baths had being converted to a koi pool.
    can't find a mention of it . got to go down to stone from wakefield next week and thought i might make a detour.

    or is it old age and a dodgy memory.

    Used to be be 'posh' restaurant near us, when I was a kid. That had a big round tiled pool inside it full of fish. I used to love it.

    Can't believe it, found a bloody photo online! Don Medi Restaurant in Kingsdown.
    ....the middle eastern owner did a runner without paying his taxes. Still at large I believe
