Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have just returned from a most interesting few days in Shropshire. We were stationed at Wroxeter which was once the fourth largest Roman city in Roman Britain.

There is little to see of the remains, above ground, except for this wall section, which used to form part of the sumptuous Roman baths.

A few years ago, a programme on Channel 4 tv showed a team of modern craftsmen build a Roman villa in the style, and with the same tools, as those used 2,000 years ago. It was called 'Rome Wasn't Built in a Day'. If you follow this link you will find out about the building and go on a virtual tour.

My photograph shows part of the original Roman wall, with the Roman villa showing through a doorway.

I hope you enjoy the tour.
Have a great Sunday, Bev :-)

Post Script - I have just noticed that this is the very first posting from Wroxeter!
