The only community swimming pool in Bridgnorth is now about to close its doors until Easter after the discovery of unexpected structural issues.
Building specialists detected issues with the steel support columns at Bridgnorth Endowed Leisure Centre while work was being done in the changing rooms.
Plans have been made to erect scaffolding and the pool will be closed while work is carried out to bring the area up to standard.
The discovery is the latest problem to hit the centre, which closed last September after problems were found during a £400,000 redevelopment work.
The pool was initially closed until the New Year, but that deadline has since been extended for a few more months.
The redevelopment of Bridgnorth Endowed Leisure Centre, which dates back to the 1970s, did not involve changes to the pool. It called for a refurbishment of the gym and new changing rooms and a spin studio.
