VILLA NEAR CHEDWORTH, THE FINEST IN THE LAND, AND THE ROMAN BATH AT BATH

About seven miles out of Cirencester on the Fosse Way to Stow-on-the-Wold a turning to the left takes one to Chedworth village, near which is one of the best preserved remains of a Roman villa (bottom) in all Britain. There is a bath and hypocaust to supply it with heat some portions of tessellated pavements and foundations. The Roman Bath at Bath (top), used from about the first to fourth centuries, was discovered :in 1755. The columns whose broken bases jut into the water supported a roof. The present pillars and roof are a reconstruction.
