History of the Pump Room
The Pump Room was originally built in 1894, designed by architect [Johnny Architect] and financed by the [Seventh?] Duke of Devonshire. It was the solution to overcrowding at the Natural Mineral Baths over the road.
Locals and visitors to Buxton could pay a penny and enjoy as much mineral water as they liked, served by Well Women (later Well Attendants) who would tend to the marble well.
