Roman Bath House, Shadwell, Consultation

Historic England is holding a public consultation from 30 November 2018 to 20 December 2018.

We are considering the Roman Bath House, Eluna Apartments, 4 Wapping Lane, Shadwell, London for addition to the Schedule of Monuments. The buried remains of the bath house comprise at least 15 rooms and it was partially excavated by archaeologists in 2002-3. The surviving elements are preserved by the modern foundation design of the Eluna Apartments.

The public consultation

We have now completed our initial assessment of the monument to consider whether it has national importance. Our consultation report comprises information on the history and details of the monument derived from our research and a site visit and it is now available for comment. This consultation is limited to the history and details in the consultation report.
