Essex Spas and Mineral Waters
Author: Ronald and Ann Cowell
ISBN: 0 86025 519 0

In the days when people sought curing waters there were three spas established in Essex – at Witham, Hockley and Dovercourt. Those simply wanting medicinal waters could find them in Tilbury, Vange and, more recently, in Wickham Bishops. Other wells that flourished for varying periods included Havering Well, Woodford Wells, Chigwell Row, Upminster Common, St Chad’s Well, Wanstead, South Weald, Felsted, and Mistley. This is a story of enterprises and their (generally disastrous) outcomes that could have made Essex a centre of healthy living.
