Saving the past!
YAC Lancaster 'adopted' the Lancaster
Roman bath house in August 2007. They have been monitoring its condition, recording its state
and cleaning it on a regular basis. In part due to its
efforts, the club were pleased to hear the recent announcement that
Lancaster City Council are to spend £17,000 on cleaning the
site, dealing with the Japanese Knotweed that is encroaching on the
site, consolidating the remains and installing new interpretation. If you would like more
