From AD 60, when the Romans built baths and a temple in the valley of the River Avon, through its growth and development in the 18th century as a popular Georgian spa town, the city of Bath has had a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped the city. Bath in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the elegant sweep of the Royal Crescent, the striking Circus, and the magnificent Pump Room and Assembly Rooms, to more recent additions such as the Thermae Spa and Southgate Shopping Precinct, this unique study celebrates the city's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local photographer George Cheshire guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
