Ardglass Bathing House on

Our Ardglass Bathing House has been included on the Discovering Britain website:

Tower of Virtue

The Discovering Britain website was set up by the Royal Geographical Society “to help people learn more about the geographical stories behind Britain’s rich and varied landscapes.” It hopes “to bring these landscapes to life by helping you to uncover the stories behind them“, and says of the bathing house:

“Today the Bathing House is admired as a Victorian folly, carefully restored as a reminder of an era when bare flesh was concealed at all costs. Stoic bathers still brave the chilly waters of the Irish Sea, but now mainly with wetsuits to protect their exposed flesh, rather than a stone tower.”
