Videos from a visit to the Roman Baths, Bath, England (21st May 2021)

Tony listening to the Hot spring (Sacred spring) at the ancient Roman Baths in the city of Bath, Southwest England, 18th May 2021.
Another video of Tony with his mum at the wonderful Hot spring at the Roman Baths, Bath, England. This natural hot spring heated the baths and pools at this ancient temple complex for bathers and worshippers who bathed naked and relaxed and meditated in various small hot pools and swam in and relaxed around the Great Bath, which back then, was roofed. The sound of the hot spring and the warmth of its temperature is delightful.
