Archaeologists have found a plunge pool which could have been part of a healthy living fad in the late 19th century



The discovery of a Victorian plunge pool has surprised archaeologists at a Grade II-listed 12th century Cluniac nunnery where Yorkists and Lancastrians fought the Battle of Northampton in 1460.

Delapre Abbey is at the centre of a £7.2 million transformation in the latest part of a story which has seen it serve as War Office during World War Two and the country record office for much of the 20th century.

Heritage experts were excavating to the north of the main building when they spotted the "unusual" pool - and they believe it could have been a bath used by health-conscious Victorian visitors.
