HISTORICAL NOTE: this was the site of Bagnigge Wells, watering
place and pleasure garden founded 1759 by Thomas Hughes. The
houses are on the site of the Long Room where concerts were
held. The inscription, refixed, may be derived from an earlier
house on the site of the spa. Nos 45-59 were probably
developed when the spa was reduced in size in 1813. Nos 61 and
63 were probably built when the spa was closed in 1841.
