Full Description

This inn may lie on the site of the spa established by Dr Chauncey in 1733; a wall in the cellar may be the wall of a sunken bath, partly under the present house and partly under the yard behind the bar, and the snug may also belong to this early building. It would appear that the building was remodelled into a farmhouse, and then extended in about 1820-30. It became an inn in the 19th century, and there have been numerous alterations to it since. (1) Ye Olde Spa Inn was built in the early 19th century, althought the core is probably early 18th century. It is 2 storeys high, the ground storey is engraved cement with roughcast above. There are 3 sash windows with cambered heads, a simple pilaster doorcase with dentilled cornice and a small weatherhood. There are cement quoins at the sides of the 1st storey and 2 stone-coped gables to the right, the left-hand portion has a hipped slate roof. There are later additions at the rear. (2)
