The Chalybeate Spring
The discovery of the Chalybeate Spring just over 400 years ago in 1606, marked the beginning of Royal Tunbridge Wells, and it still forms a central part of The Pantiles and of the town today. Visitors came to see and be seen in fashionable Tunbridge Wells, but above all to 'take the waters'. Chalybeate (pronounced Ka-lee-bee-at) means iron-rich, and the iron taste is evident in the water. At the height of its popularity in the eighteenth century, the Spring water was reputed to cure all sorts of ills from infertility and hangovers to obesity and 'a moist brain'.
