History of the Town -
A bird gave it away. In 1716 the pigeons were seen pecking at the
ground of a field in the village of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire,
which revealed the existence of a hidden underground spring.
Perhaps the birds were drawn by the salt deposited in the ground
by the mineral springs. The discovery transformed a sleepy town
into one of the most popular spas in England, this prompted the
citizens of Cheltenham to incorporate the lowly pigeon into the
town crest. When King George III visited the 'pump room' at
Cheltenham in 1788, the fortunes of the town took a turn for the
better. Forever transformed, the prestige of royal patronage made
Cheltenham one of the places to see and be seen, perhaps even now
with various noted colleges, bars and restaurants, this remains
true for Cheltenham. Building work incorporated new wells being
built, and the fashionable pump rooms opened and a building boom
ensued, to accommodate the visitors, the Regency terrace was
developed.
