is the fourth, revised edition of a booklet first published in 1983. It
tells the story of Ashby's attempt to become a Spa Town from 1822
onwards. It had a chequered history, with the Baths being finally
demolished in 1962. The Bath Grounds have been an important recreation
space for townspeople and visitors right up until the present day.
