Shown as The Spa (Chalybeate) on Ordnance Survey map.
Spa bath. Probably early C18. Limestone ashlar. Rectangular tank with flight of
stone steps in west wall. Paved floor of tank has drainage channels. Smaller
chamber attached to south-west corner of tank also has flight of access steps
and was probably the feeder channel. The walls of the tank have graffitti dating
from 1747 to end of C19. The potential of a chalybeate spring rising from the
ferruginous limestone was first exploited by a Dr. Brown in about 1670. Morton
records a "fit cistern of stone......" in 1712.
