Ben Rhydding Golf Hotel, 1930s

The Ben Rhydding Golf Hotel in the 1930s

< Photo:  (Accessed 15 July 2016)

Increasingly in the twentieth century, Ben Rhydding became less of a hydro and more of a recreational establishment ending, finally, as a golfing hotel. There are no Turkish (or even Russian) baths mentioned in this advertisement from a local guide of the 1930s, and it is not currently known how long they remained in use, although the original Turkish baths building can still be seen on the extreme right of the photograph.

The hotel closed at the outbreak of WWII; the building was demolished in 1955, but the golf club still exists.
