Gloucester's hidden Roman history opened to the public

A hidden piece of Gloucester's Roman history is to be opened to the public for the first time in almost 20 years.

The King's Bastion chamber, beneath a trap door in the King's Walk shopping centre, contains surviving parts of the city's Roman walls and remains of a medieval tower.

Until recently the underground room suffered from flooding and was unsafe for people to visit.

It will be open to the public in a series of guided tours next Thursday and Friday as part of Gloucester's Heritage Open Days.
