History Of The Spa

Sitting just outside the town of Melksham, The Spa was an initiative of the local gentry in the early 19th Century to create a fashionable new destination to rival Bath. The Chalybeate Spring had been discovered in 1770 and with the discovery of a second, saline, source in the early 1800s several purpose built buildings were created. Melksham Spa however couldn't compete with the warm waters of Bath or the new fashion of sea bathing and the Spa soon failed and the houses became private residences and in one case a school.


In a prestigious address conveniently located within a level walking distance to the town centre, where facilities include a comprehensive range of shops and commercial outlets together with the new campus, library, main post office and bus services to surrounding towns whilst more local amenities include primary health care centres. For a further range of amenities Bath is 12 miles away and the nearby towns of Devizes, Corsham, Trowbridge and Chippenham are within suitable access with the latter having a mainline rail station providing links to London(Paddington), also access to the M4 corridor can be accessed via junction 17 just north of the town of Chippenham.
