Although work is at an early stage, the bath house appears to include a range of rooms including a cold plunge bath as well as hot rooms warmed by underfloor heating. Elsewhere on the site, substantial walls are thought to belong to the old St Thomas’ Hospital which used to be located there.
“This is a significant find and offers a further insight into London’s long history,” says Chris Place from Network Rail.
