So this is the Roman Bath, in Bath:



(AKA My Little Hellmouth?)

Technically, it's the spring overflow, and as you can see, 2000 years of running water has deposited a lot of mineral salts on top of the original stone. It's quite freaky when you're actually there - it's a hot spring, so there's a lot of steam as well as this gaping orange maw. Hard to capture the steam in photos; I'm rather glad to see the official photo at the link above doesn't show you the steam properly either!

That is really quite fascinating...
Ooooh, I was there many years ago. (I paid for a cup of the water and not only did it taste nasty, it was hot! ::shudders::) Anyway, great shot.
So interesting!
