Exeter's Roman Baths

Exeter's Roman Baths are believed to be the second most important building of their time in the country - except of course, you can't see them.

They are buried under tonnes of earth in front of Exeter Cathedral, which submitted plans to excavate the remains and build an underground visitor centre there. However, these plans have failed to attract Lottery funding.

Exeter Cathedral will unveil details of its Foundations Project later today.

It has submitted plans to excavate the remains of a Roman Bath House which lie beneath Cathedral Green and hopes to build an underground visitor centre there.

It is estimated that the attraction would bring an extra 100,000 visitors to the city each year.
