An octagonal example measuring over 5m across was excavated at Bax Farm, near Faversham, Kent in 2006. This had a large brick conduit for supplying cold water. The walls were originally decorated with painted plaster, and the floors with coloured tesserae. This is the first example to be found in south-east England. It had been suggested that the octagonal frigidarium could have been used for Christian baptism or Jewish sacred bathing (Pitts, 2006).
