"The Wells and Campden Baths and Wash-houses 1888"
"The Wells and Campden Baths and Wash-houses 1888"
This building in Well Walk, Hampstead, stands on the site of the celebrated chalybeate well that from 1700 became the focus of fashionable Londoners and visitors from further afield.
Its popularity declined in the 1800s due to competition with other London spas and the main water source was then lost as a result of drainage work. The spa was demolished in 1882, although a water fountain was left behind. This building was established by a local charity for the benefit of the neighbourhood when ordinary people did not have running water in their homes.
