Chalybeate Spring and Bath House

Chalybeate Spring and Bath House

Following the discovery by Lord North of the iron-salts bearing Chalybeate Spring, the land was cleared and a triangular enclosure constructed over it. In 1804 a bath house was built to provide the wealthy patrons of the health-spa with warm vapour and shower baths.

The original spring was incorporated into the outside of this building and survives to this day along with the facade of the Bath House. During summer months it is still possible to 'take the waters' served in the traditional manner by a 'dipper' - a young lady in 17th Century dress.
