Roman Bath-House

Roman Bath-House, Vicarage Field, Lancaster 
(behind Lancaster Priory, LA1 1XB)

Walk down Priory Lane, through the gap in the wall behind Lancaster Priory, and it's on your right. 

Discovered and excavated in 1973–4, the Roman bath-house in Vicarage Field, Lancaster, formed one end of a large courtyard house, probably the home of a Roman official.

It was demolished in about AD340 to make way for a new and massive stone fort. Part of the fort wall, known as the ‘Wery Wall’, can also be seen.

"Open all reasonable times." (It's out in the open. The only time you can't go there is Fireworks Night.)
