Bath was sparkling in winter sunshine on Saturday:
Not a cloud in the sky:
As we walked along the path which crosses the park in front of the Royal Crescent (above & middle) we started thinking what this beautiful city would have looked like during the Georgian rennaissance in the 18th century - the elder John Wood designed the facade of the buildings which comprise the Royal Crescent but, apparently, each purchaser bought a length of the outer facade and then hired his or her own artchitect to design the living space behind it. Consequently, what looks uniform from the front is actually not so.....the Georgian equivalent of a new build suburb in fact! Bizarre when you look at the city now in it's faded palladian honey-stoned mellowness.....
Have a happy, mellow, week everyone............s
