Apart from the epic trip to Chernobyl, I’ve not had much of an opportunity to explore new places this summer. Going over to visit my mate Rob, who lives in Nowheresville, Lincolnshire, gave me an opportunity to have a look at something on the way.

An exploring friend recommended this place to me, and I remember Rob mentioning to me a while back that he knew about the place. Rob is not an explorer (though I’ve tried to convert!), and he told me I’d be a ‘rat up a drainpipe’ if I saw this. I liked this place; its just about doable on your own.

Not a particularly relaxed explore; The weather was grim, there were an annoying number of people near the site, and inside I could smell dodgy smoke, and later could hear voices. But I hadn’t seen the pool, and after some perseverance, I found it.



These luxury baths built on a natural spring within a small Lincolnshire town upon which it was named after the bath. When drilling for oil commenced in the early 1800's they stumbled upon a natural spring which kept pouring into a nearby stream. It was said to have cured sick cows who drunk from it. The locals started drinking from it and a small wooden bath was built to bathe in. The local landowner decided to build a brick bath in 1830 and within ten years it's fame had grown so much that a proper bath house was built. This included six treatment rooms and a hotel. In 1887 the baths and and spa was enlarged. After the collapse of the well in 1983 the spa closed its doors.

This site hasn't been documented so much on the forum, so was nice to see something fresh

Massive sigh.

Sorry :(
I have been having some serious hosting issues recently, and need to find a new photo uploading site.
It shows on mine, but will try to resolve

Hopefully it works...... Please tell me either way, even if my photos are shit :D

Pics are fine now mate. The site's seen better days though, amazing it's still standing really.

Well covered though. I love the first shot - the detail in those doors!

Phew. That's a relief. I'v'e had much stress & headache uploading photos recently (I need to change my hosting provider)

Thanks mate :) the entrance would have been quite grand; shame the rest of it has seen better days, but its not doing bad for its 30+ year decay

Hi well done I tried this site last winter I think it was, but with the land owners being customers of ours I didn't venture far..


The front gates were wide open and I could walk straight in although there were enough things there to suggest someone would be back really quickly. I had a quick wander round got a couple of pics and that was it. Lovely to see that not much more has been done to it. Did you manage to get upstairs ?

Thanks :)
It was an interesting wander
Didn't venture upstairs as i was looking for the pool room as priority, and then ran out of time before i could have a look up there
