Tunbridge Wells

Tunbridge Wells, a municipal borough and watering-place, on the borders of Kent and Sussex, 5 miles S. or Tunbridge. The chalybeate springs, situated at the end of the chief parade, called the Pantiles, were discovered by Lord North in 1606. Mount Ephraim and other Biblical names have been handed down from the days of the Puritans, and more recently the town has been a stronghold of the Evangelical party. There is a fine open common, and the surrounding country is very picturesque.
