Wightwick Manor: View from cooling room to hot room

A corner of the hot room in the Wightwick Manor Turkish bath, seen from the 'bathroom', mid-1990s.

It seems probable that there was no door between the two rooms when the baths were first built. It also seems unlikely that the tiled floor was originally covered with duckboards. However, the contemporary weighing machine, or one like it, might well have been used by bathers in the cooling-room.
