SHANKLIN SZ5881 SHANKLIN CHINE 1352-0/8/213 Hot Brine Bath II

Hot brine bath. c1845. Marble basin with sloping back and 2 steps at front facilitated by means of ramped wooden handrail with turned wooden balusters. This was removed from Fishermans's Cottage in 1970 (see item 8/212). Sea water was piped to the cottage and heated in a large copper tank by means of a fire underneath. Hot brine baths were thought to have special health-giving properties but the practice became less common towards the end of the C19 when sea bathing became more popular. Included for historical interest.
