Sherborne Spa (on the site of the Queen's Hotel (qv), by 1826
it was a carriage drive with spacious gravelled walk on each
side. Although originally on either side were 'rows of elegant
houses,' by 1845 (when Rowe wrote his Cheltenham Guide,
published in 1850) he noted that 'nearly the whole of the
left-hand (SE) side .. is devoted to professional or business
establishments.'
The ground floors form a continuous commercial unit with No.32
