Georgian Bathroom: Cornwall

The Georgian Bathroom, is a bathroom located in the cliffs surrounding a beach in Cornwall, England. John Stackhouse, the owner of Acton Castle, built these two bathrooms in the late 1700s. The first bath was a tide pool with a drain to keep the water at a constant level. The other bathroom was carved into the cliffs and contained spring water. Stackhouse created these bathrooms to take advantage of bathing’s supposed medicinal benefits in seawater and spring water. Today, these bathrooms are no longer in use as there are too many spiders and sea slaters for someone to comfortably bathe.
