Epsom first sprang to prominence in 1618 when Henry Wicker, a grazier, discovered the “purgative” qualities, on both humans and animals, of the local saline well water which contained magnesium sulphate – now commonly known as Epsom Salts. People subsequently flocked to Epsom as a spa destination to take the water and its popularity grew.
Numerous attractions were needed to entertain the visitors and, as part of the amusements provided for them, the town consequently developed a close and long lasting link to horse racing. Due to its close proximity to London, and the free draining quality of the rolling Epsom Downs, it was particularly suited to the training and racing of horses.
