A whole new world, perhaps we should move over and let the new generation have free rein. After all they will have to live with what they conjure up!

I always think how building sites look smaller than the original building!

Its a pity on the original construction of the baths; Nobody had the wherewithal nor the insight to look for the archaeology.

They were too busy single mindedly constructing a folly of Olympic proportions.

I have no idea what will be built here. Now let us guess:
Car park (you pay)
Council offices (You pay)
Shopping centre (You pay, eventually)
New baths? You pay for that as well.

Only a bully will spend your money as they see fit.
