22,979; 3 Banks, 5 newspapers. Leamington appears
in Domesday Book as
Lamintone, but was subsequently
designated Leamington Priors, through itsbeing granted
to the priors of Kenilworth. Since 1811, when the
town contained only 543 inhabitants, Leamington has
risen with marvellous rapidity, its progress being due
to its sheltered position in the valley of the Leam, and
the historical interest and beauty of its neighbourhood,
but chiefly, perhaps, to the excellence of its medicinal
springs. The town was incorporated as Royal Leaming-
ton Spa in March 1875, and was included in the pari,
limits of Warwick and Leamington in 1885. Its trade
is in a large measure connected with supplying the
wants of numerous visitors ; but there is a prominent
industry in the mfr. of Leamington cooking ranges,
which have gained a high reputation.
