Listing Text

1352-0/8/213 Hot Brine Bath

Hot brine bath. c1845. Marble basin with sloping back and 2
steps at front facilitated by means of ramped wooden handrail
with turned wooden balusters. This was removed from
Fishermans's Cottage in 1970 (see item 8/212). Sea water was
piped to the cottage and heated in a large copper tank by
means of a fire underneath. Hot brine baths were thought to
have special health-giving properties but the practice became
less common towards the end of the C19 when sea bathing became
more popular. Included for historical interest.
