Bath

Wow. 2000 year old Roman Baths and relics.

One of the main things I was awed with here was the enormousnous of the terrace houses and the use of the same stone on practically all of the buildings in Bath.

The Abbey was spectacular and huge. Inside is full of headstones on the floors and walls. The ones on the floors are fairly worn, but the ones on the walls look as if they were mounted very recently, but of course they weren’t. They contain quirky, detailed descriptions of the deceased. As the Abbey didn’t have an outdoor garden as such, people were laid to rest underneath the floor of the Abbey, until some centuries later when they were all removed.
