Bath Place has a long and interesting history. We are in the process of finding out more about it and hopefully gathering together some historic pictures. Perhaps you know something about it? If so do get in touch.
From the Middle Ages, Bath Place was the main thoroughfare to the west of the town until Corporation Street was cut in 1894.The street was straightened and widened in the 18th century and most of the current buildings date from this era. The shopfronts remain remarkably unspoiled by the passage of time. Many of the buildings still have their Georgian shop fronts with octagonal glazed fanlights. The houses and gardens which are also part of Bath Place also take us back in time.
Maintaining the look and ambiance of the street is always work in progress. Recently paving has been laid to enhance the historic look of Bath Place and make it safer and easier underfoot. Thanks to TDBC and Highways.
