Roman Bath House and Wery Wall Remains

The Wery Wall is a surviving fragment of Roman walling on the east slope of Castle Hill adjacent to the rear of Mitre House. It measures 4.0m by 3.0m by 3.0m high and is situated on a very steep bank running north south.The remains represent a section of a bastion of the last Roman fort on the site, which probably dates to the fourth century.

Adjacent to the Wery Wall are the remains of a small bathhouse. This was excavated and preserved by excavations in 1973 prior to re-development of the site.
