Tenbury Wells had the 'Wells' added to its name last century to help promote the Mineral Water Wells that had been found in the town from 1840 onwards. The mineral waters brought about the building in 1862 of the now restored Tenbury Spa. The Spa, or Pump Rooms as it is generally known, has been described as 'Chinese Gothic' and was designed by James Cranston of Birmingham after some greenhouses he had designed, replacing the glass by wrought iron sheets. It was one of the earliest examples of prefabrication, with the sheets being made in Birmingham and assembled on site.
