2002 Commonwealth Games swimming pool
This is the entrance to the Aquatics Centre which was a legacy of the 2002 Commonwealth Games. I like the fact it retained a statement of its provenance.
Evidently this £32 million swimming complex was the only one in the UK to have two 50 metre pools. (I guess the London Olympics now have similar?)
This website has a interesting look at the north-west regional legacy of those 2002 games: http://www.gameslegacy.co.uk/cgi-bin/index.cgi
