An Introduction to Harrogate

Harrogate is a spa town in North Yorkshire, England. The spa water contains iron, sulphur and common salt. The town became known as 'The English Spa' in the Georgian Era, after its waters were first discovered in the 16th century, three wells were found over 2 centuries, and the Spa's were often used to treat illnesses.

History 

Harrogate History

Harrogate/

Until the 17th century Harrogate was just a quiet hamlet until the the late 16th century when William Slingsby drank from a well and having travelled to several spas previously he realised the well water tasted like spa water. People believed that drinking water from such a well would heal sicknesses and Harrogate continued to grow into a spa town after 1631 when Dr Michael Stanhope discovered a second well. In the late 18th century much public land was enclosed and 200 acres were dedicated to the public.

A water company was formed in 1846 to provide Harrogate with piped water. During the 19th century Harrogate was still dependent on its spa's and a third well was discovered in 1895. The spa's continued to flourish until the 1960s as the National Health Service sent people to the Royal Baths for a cure but stopped funding for this treatment in 1968 and they closed in 1969.
