Woodhall Spa

Woodhall Spa is a civil parish and village in Lincolnshire, England, on the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, 6mi south-west of Horncastle and 15mi east-south-east of Lincoln. It is noted for its mineral springs, cinema and its Second World War association with the RAF 617 Squadron. The cinema has the last remaining rear screen projector in the country.HistoryThe development of Woodhall SpaWoodhall Spa came about by accident in 1811 after John Parkinson of Old Bolingbroke made several attempts to find coal. After spending several thousand pounds and sinking a shaft over 1,000 feet deep, the enterprise was abandoned on account of the now rising spring. The spring flows daily through soft spongy rock at a depth of 520 feet.About 1834, the then Lord of the Manor, Thomas Hotchkin, ascertained by analysis that the water was in fact valuable, being an iodine and bromine containing mineral spring. He spent nearly £30,000 sinking a well,and erecting the Spa Baths and the Victoria Hotel.
