The Roman town at Wall was known as Letocetum in Roman times. The town lay on the Roman Road of Watling Street, the Roman military road to North Wales and became a key staging post. Visitors (usually imperial postal couriers) changed their horses and stayed overnight in the guest house (mansio), making use of the bath house. The surviving remains of the bath house and guest house are visible today and are shown as they would have looked in Roman times in this reconstruction drawing. The property is in the care of English Heritage (2011).
