The hot mineral waters in Bath are the only hot springs in England. Rain water from the Mendip Hills filters through an underground layer of limestone in the earth. Down, down it travels to about 14,000 feet, where by geological wonder it is then pushed back up through the earth along fissures and cracks in the limestone rock formations to the surface where it flows out into three springs, heated by the deep-level strata. Around 250,000 gallons flow from the earths surface every day, which the bath houses are built over. The water's earthy tone and taste account for the minerals that dissolve from the rocks as the water passes through it.
