Many people who have taken holidays in Norfolk and local residents alike will have happy family memories of the Splash Leisure and Fitness Centre in Sheringham.
It took five years to build, cost £2.5m and Her Royal Highness Diana, Princess of Wales officially opened the facility just off Weybourne Road on May 11, 1988.
There were sports courts, a café, gym and a 'tropical' swimming pool with a wave machine and water slide that provided hours of fun for all ages.
Over the years, Splash hosted events ranging from swimming lessons and lifeguard courses to birthday parties, open days and sponsored swims organised by local Norfolk charities.
Splash may have disappeared but the memories live on. Please enjoy reminiscing on them by looking through these old photos from the archive.
