Looking east down the south aisle of Bath Abbey toward the Gethsemane Chapel. The aisle walls are covered in plaques from around the world (all after the 16th C), mostly from the Georgian Period, memorializing those who died after travelling great distances to be revived by the water. I guess the abbey wasn’t in business with the Spa, because this just is not good advertising.
