Bath Abbey

Our third day in Bath was jam-packed with sight-seeing. Our first landmark is Bath Abbey. This incredible piece of architecture boasts 52 large stained-glass windows. It began as a cathedral, but was reduced in status when the Bishop left his residence in this city of lime. The gothic architecture and intricate stain glass windows are only a few of the boasts of this historical edifice.

Roman Baths

Our second stop was the Roman Baths. The Baths werenít discovered during Janeís life, but we are able to enjoy them today. Well, they were open from the 1880ís until the 1970ís, when a woman contracted amoebic dysentery from the water and the Baths were forced to close. It is important now that sightseers not touch (or taste) this water.
