The place where you were where you went to see and be seen. There were pools with three different temperatures of water. Most of what remains are the bricks outside, not a whole lot to see.

The only thing you can dip in here is now dust unfortunately. Roman baths were busy social centres where you met people and went to see and be seen. A little basic knowledge is required to interpret the layout of a roman bath and this ruinous site is no exception. There was a hypocaust ( underfloor heating ) a cold... More
