Ivanhoe Terrace, Ashby-de-la-Zouch
In 1819 Sir Walter Scott published Ivanhoe, a novel partly set at Ashby Castle. Three years later the Ivanhoe Baths were opened, promoting the town as a spa (although in fact the water came from a colliery at Moira). The twin attractions of the castle ruins, with their newly acquired literary connection, and the baths made Ashby into a significant Georgian tourist centre. The visitors needed to be accommodated and this terrace on South Street was built for the purpose to a design by Robert Chaplin between 1822 and 1826.
