BOROUGH OF BACUP BATHS - The Baths Committee on the 13th inst. accepted the designs of Messrs Mangnall and Littlewoods, architects, Manchester, and have also accepted tenders for the work amounting to £7,500, presented by the late Mr. Henry Maden. The baths include first and second-class swimming-baths, first and second-class slipper-baths, and Turkish baths. The prizes were originally awarded as follows: First prize, Mr. Wilson, assistant borough engineer; second prize, Messrs. Mangnall and Littlewoods; third prize, Mr. Wilson, senior, borough engineer; but the estimates from Mr. Wilson, being unsatisfactory, were rejected by the committee.
