NOTES: The Swiss Cottage Swimming Baths and Central Library opened in 1964 but the council chamber and administration buildings included in the original masterplan for Hampstead Civic Centre were abandoned in 1966 with the reorganization of local government in London. These baths and Coventry Central Baths, designed by Coventry City Architects Department and completed in 1966, were the only complexes of the period to be built with three pools.
