Roman Mosaic Uncovered at Lion Walk

Just one metre beneath Red Lion Yard, located in Colchester’s Lion Walk Shopping Centre, lies an ancient roman mosaic from almost 2,000 years ago.



Experts began to unravel the mosaic earlier this week and have predicted that the mosaic could measure as big as 25 feet by 25 feet. If it is discovered, the head of Colchester’s Heritage wants to keep it underground in a transparent case so that the townspeople and visitors can watch as they walk the same path the Romans took nearly 2,000 years ago.

A piece of this mosaic was originally discovered by the Victorians and is already in the hands of Colchester Council.



The Pop-Up Club has come to Lion Walk, Colchester!

The new pop-up shop will showcase 40 locally-based independent and sustainable brands under one roof. Customers can shop beautifully hand-crafted products, from eco-friendly candles and clothing to art and home decor, and learn more about the business owners behind them.
