 Bath Time...
A brand new spa with 2,000 year past.


From pre-Roman times until the Spa closed in 1978, people from all over the world enjoyed the special properties of this unique resource - the only hot springs in the UK - for healing, relaxation and leisure, and in autumn 2002, Bath's natural thermal waters will once again be used for bathing in a complex combining restored historic buildings and a new, state-of-the-art leisure Spa. Bath's restored Spa will offer indoor and outdoor thermal pools with whirl-pools, neck massage jets and air-beds; steam-rooms, massage rooms and a range of traditional and complementary spa treatments. All of these facilities are within 100 metres of the world-famous Roman Baths Museum. The new Spa was described by the Daily Telegraph as 'the most remarkable project in local government'. This is why. It offers the only place in the UK where you can bathe in natural, hot spring water. It includes a new building in glass and stone to match the quality of the City's unique architectural heritage, as well as the restoration of five important heritage buildings. The new Spa gives visitors the opportunity to benefit from a range of Spa treatments which will make Bath an international focal point for natural health and well-being.
The Project is funded by a combination of funds from the National Lottery in the form of a £7.78 million Millennium Commission grant, private investment of £5.3 million from Dutch Spa operator Thermae Development Company, and local authority support. Campbell Scientific will be installing between 25 and 30 sensors at the Roman Baths and surrounding water sources, from. where, Every single day, over a million litres of hot, mineral-rich water rise from three springs in the heart of Bath. These sensors, along with around a dozen existing sensors, are to be connected into a new multi-channel data logging system which, when commissioned, will provide an extremely detailed picture of the various water parameters such as flow, temperature, pressure, pH, conductivity and turbidity at various points around the Baths. This will allow Bath and North East Somerset Council to see exactly what is happening to the water in the Roman Baths to a degree which was not previously possible. _______________________________________________________ For further information, contact:- Bath Spa Project: www.bathspa.co.uk Report courtesy of Giles White, Consultant, Bath Spa Project June 2001
