Photographer's Note

The Roman Baths complex is a site of historical interest in the English city of Bath. The house is a well-preserved Roman site for public bathing. The Roman Baths themselves are below the modern street level.

The water which bubbles up from the ground at Bath fell as rain on the nearby Mendip Hills. It percolates down through limestone aquifers to a depth of between 2,700 metres and 4,300 metres where geothermal energy raises the water temperature to between 64 C and 96 C. Under pressure, the heated water rises to the surface along fissures and faults in the limestone
