The Spa at Woodhall
Woodhall Spa is a wooded oasis encompassing a fine Edwardian Broadway.
The story of the Spa began in the early 19th century,
with an unused industrial mineshaft found to be full of water
that had overflowed into the ditches of Coalpit Wood. This new
discovery inspired incredible investment in Woodhall Spa and it
became a fashionable inland spa resort.
