FaulknerBrowns and Polin creating waterpark next to 800 year-old church tower
16 Oct 2017 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
The Christchurch Tower originally formed part of a larger cruciform church that was destroyed in the dissolution of the monasteries in the 1500s
Waterslide manufacturer Polin is collaborating with architecture firm FaulknerBrowns to create an indoor waterpark in the British city Coventry, located next to a church spire dating from the Middle Ages.

The Christchurch Tower originally formed part of a larger cruciform church that was destroyed in the dissolution of the monasteries in the 1500s, and was one of three historic spires bombed during the Coventry Blitz in 1941.

Coventry City Centre Leisure Park is set to open next to the tower in early 2019. It will feature an indoor waterpark, a 25m pool, a gym, a climbing wall, squash courts, a dance studio and a day spa.

Occupying a relatively small footprint, the facility has been specially designed to reflect the dimensions of the spire and the waterpark will feature a range of slides specially adapted for the reduced space.

The biggest slide, the Space Hole, will stand 14.62 m (48 ft) high, with the other slides measuring 11.5 m (37.7 ft).

Buckingham Group Contracting is the main contractor on the project.
