A to Z of Leicester: J is for...

Jewry Wall

The Jewry Wall stands beside the remains of Roman baths, unearthed in the 1930s when builders began work on new public baths. The Romans built that wall to last... and last it did! But those public baths never were built.

A quadragintal is a blog of exactly 40 words.

p.s. I'll be posting up one of my chatty blogs later today.

  2. It's very pretty! I love old buildings and I'd never heard of a quadragintal--I write drabbles now and again, but this is new.

  3. 9I love to look at old ruins. (I'm laughing, all I have to do is look in the mirror.) Wouldn't it be fun to have gone in a Roman bath?
