Long Description:
Warm springs were first discovered here in 1698, and during Victorian times the town became a popular tourist attraction especially after the arrival of the railways.

These days the town is not as popular as a spa town, but it continues to be a popular tourist destination.

This fountain is in the middle of small pond which is used to hold a stock of large gold fish. Originally the pond was used to wash the carriages and horses from the Old Bath spa hotel.

Across the road is a pub appropriately called the Fishpond.
