History

Plas Power was completely remodelled by John Gibson, architect, for Thomas Lloyd Fitzhugh in 1858, and many ancillary buildings in the park were remodelled or newly built at that time. It is likely that the Bath House is contemporary. The building is said to have been used as a shower house in association with the adjacent hunting stables, but may have been built as a well house.

Exterior

Small circular structure; coursed and squared stone with shallow domed roof recessed behind rusticated embattled parapet. Ogee headed doorway facing S, with cast-iron barred gate, and segmentally arched window towards E.

Interior

The building is lined with quartzite in the manner of agrotto. It contains a cast-iron pump.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a rare example of an architecturally conceived well-house, which has group value with other structures in the park at Plas Power.
