Mr Monkey visits the Roman Baths, 2nd June

"I'm staying safely away from that water"

Mr Monkey looking at the Roman drain Mr Monkey looking at the spring overflow

The Romans found out quite quickly that the spring they'd built their baths around produced more water than they needed, so they added a drain to take excess water away to the river Avon. Mr Monkey inspected the drain and the arched tunnel from the spring, and admired the orange colour of the stonework. He had to be careful because there was a lot of water, and a lot of steam.
