Photos of Chichester's Roman Baths Revealed

A new museum's being built in Chichester over some ancient Roman Baths, and it will open to the public in around seven month's time.

The Novium is located on Tower Street - a road opposite the cathedral.

The new museum has been built over the remains of Roman Baths - and these have now been uncovered.

At the moment - other than the remains of the Roman Baths - the museum is empty.

The Roman Baths were discovered in the 1970s and protected underneath a car park - until they could be uncovered within the new museum.

Over the coming months experts will be working on the internal displays and moving collections into the new museum - it will open around late Spring next year.

Now the first photo of the Roman baths themselves has been revealed to Heart.
