On Wed 8th November, Dr Roger Rolls will be speaking on Eighteenth-Century Life in the Bath General Hospital – a Virtual Tour.
This public hospital, later known the Royal Mineral Water Hospital, offered care for “poor persons from all parts of Great Britain and Ireland who are suffering from complaints for which the Bath Mineral Waters are a remedy”. All this some 200 years before the welfare state!
This talk is in Combe Down Primary School hall; the entrance is on Summer Lane, BA2 5JX. The doors are open from 7 p.m. and the talk starts, as usual, at 7.30pm. CDHS Members £1, Visitors £3. All tickets on the door.
