Site Description

Ruinous remains of a small rectaqngular stone and brick building constructed in the 18th century to house a cold water plunge bath. The tile-lined pool within was fed by water from a stream via a stone-lined and capped culvert. The building housed both the pool and a small dressing area heated by a small corner hearth.
