III. Turkish baths in Wales

Table last updated: 07 July 2017

This table lists stand-alone Turkish bath establishments alphabetically by place.

Additional establishments in this country are included in separate tables listing Turkish baths which are part of other establishments, ie, in Asylums, and Hydros.

Known opening and closing dates are indicated in the table.place. All articles include a chronology, though these do not appear in the version of the site without frames.

Dates in blue  are accurate openings or closures to the best of our knowledge;
Dates in maroon  are first and last sightings;
Plus or minus signs  indicate 'and later' or 'and earlier'.

When one or both of the icons on the left of the table appear in red, this indicates that there is an article, notes, or chronology relating to the establishment. Clicking on the left hand icon []] takes you to the relevant page on the site; clicking on the right hand icon [] takes you to the no-frames version of the page. When there is no icon on the right, the page, consisting only of a chronology, is not available in the no-frames version.

If you have access to local newspapers and can add, amend, or correct any dates, please do contact us.
