Question:
I was wondering if you have any information on the Wootten Bassett spa as it was in the 19th century.
I would appreciate any help you can offer.

Answer:
Although there were mineral wells at Wootton Bassett for which curative properties were claimed the town cannot be described as a spa. Although the town tried to establish itself it was a failure from the start. You will find general information on the town in the 19th century in P.J. Gingell's book, History of Wootton Basset, Wootton Bassett Historical Society, 1977. You will be able to request this through your local library.
