Description of the Pump Room
The interior of the Pump Room is an elegant hall decorated with Corinthian fluted columns. A deep cove separates the entablature from the flat ceiling. A niche on the west side contains the Pump Room fountain, which still dispenses hot mineral water from the springs. Though not very tasty, for centuries this water has been regarded as having healing properties.
Construction begins on the Pump Room in Bath, starting in the main block under architect Thomas Baldwin.
Thomas Baldwin resigns as architect of the Pump Room.
Construction of the Pump Room continues under Palmer.
