Travel Tips for Welwyn

Sorry, no photos

by colin_bramso

My family lives in Welwyn Garden City, very close to the village of Welwyn, so we drive through quite often.

I forgot to take photos of the village but I'll make a point of doing it on future visits, just for VT!

We do like the Red Lion pub for an evening meal and Geina did take some photos of that on our last visit, which I've included in my Resaurant Tips.

Welwyn & The Roman Baths

by Willettsworld

The village of Welwyn is located just north of the world's second garden city of Welwyn Garden City in the middle of Hertfordshire. It's situated in the valley of the River Mimram which was first settled in the Iron Age. The Belgae tribe called the Catuvellauni were here in the 1st century BC and then the Romans arrived. Their remains have been found in the form of Roman Baths which can be visited underneath the A1(M) motorway, just to the east of the present day village. Much later, in the 17th century, as it lies on the Great North Road, it became an important staging post and a number of coaching inns remain as public houses. After the Great Northern Railway by-passed the village due to the objections of local landowners, Welwyn became less important.

Church of St Mary the Virgin

by Willettsworld

A Norman church was built on this site around 1190. The nave of the present church was built in the 13th century, the chancel arch being the most obvious early structure. There are two medieval corbels at the east end of the south aisle. Patronage of the church passed through several hands until in 1549 it was sold to the Wilshere family, who lived at The Frythe, a country house nearby, until relatively recently.

Roman baths

by Willettsworld

In 1960, local archaeologist Tony Rook saw Roman tiles in the bank of the River Mimram. He began a training dig and after 10 years of excavation, the Roman baths (located to the east of the village under the A1(M) motorway) were fully uncovered - just as the route was announced for the building of the motorway that would be built straight through the site. The baths are protected 9 metres under the motorway and can be accessed via a tunnel but some other buildings were completely lost.

The Welwyn Baths are a small part of the Dicket Mead villa, a Roman ruin which was originally built in the 3rd century AD. The complex was probably part of a farm, and may have also formed a country retreat for a wealthy merchant from London or St. Albans. It has also been speculated that it might have been at least in part the equivalent of an hotel, lying as it does near the Roman roads from London to Chester. The baths feature a frigidarium (cold room), tepidarium (warm room), caldarium (hot room) and hypocaust (under floor heating system).
