Bath Tripe
Game and Offal

Form of tripe formerly produced in the town of Bath, the receipt now lost.

Described in 'Street-lore of Bath' by Robert Peach (1893) as simply "The Bath tripe differs from other tripe in the country chiefly in the excessive care bestowed upon it in the process of cleaning, dressing, and trimming."

Known from advertisements from the 1840's to the 1890's, and at least two bankruptcy cases (William Baker, 1844 and William Jones, 1887) suggesting that, whatever Bath Tripe was, it wasn't especially profitable.
