Starting Point North

Baths

The walk begins at Bath Row/The Meadows. Two varieties of signage show the street name and the brown and cream painted type on what was the public bath house. Established in 1722 by four local surgeons as a reaction to the town’s poor sanitary conditions, the building was thought to have housed a plunge pool as well as the baths.
