View of the Roman Baths, taken from the west end of the south side on the lower level, with the baths in the foreground. The baths are stepped and date to the 1st century, along with the Tuscan columns that surround it. The concert hall on the north side is just visible on the left above the baths, and supported by an arcade of five Tuscan columns, four of which can be seen in the image. Above the parapet on the eastern side of the baths are two of the nine life-size statues built by G. A. Lawson. The statues are of influential Roman Emperors and Generals. A replacement of Julius Ceasar was made between 1989-90 following vandalism. In the north-east corner is a small group of figures visiting the baths, and in the water is a reflection of the concert hall over the north side, and the crossing tower of St Peter and St Paul's Church.
