Cheltenham

This was a small Cotswold (stone) village until its miracle springs were discovered in 1715. It seemed that its waters were a cure-all for colonial military officers returning from tropical regions with liver disorders. Consequently a whole classical city was laid out and built so these military men could retire into the manner in which they were accustomed. With its wide Regency avenues Cheltenham can be summed up as POSH.
