The Roman Baths, Jesus Lane, Cambridge. This fine 1863 building was designed for the Roman Bath Company by Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt. Although it is now a restaurant, one can easily visualise how the original cooling-room and swimming pool must have looked when it was first opened.

But what is dust,
Save Time's most lethal weapon…?
