365 Project – Day 353

It Must Be Nearly Christmas. The last Saturday before Christmas saw us ‘up with the cock’ and on the bus into Bath. First to Green Park Market, our wonderful Farmers Market, for some bread from my favourite baker. Then on for an early Christmas present; Mrs Sixwheeler had booked me into a Gentlemen’s Hairdresser to…

Where we walk. Another photo showing one of the places we walk. This shows the path across the fields at the top of the hill above Weston village. From just beyond the ridge are some of the most amazing views across the whole of the city of Bath. As you can see at this time…

Bath Abbey. This morning was a beautiful, bright and crisp winter’s morning; I happened to be in town and couldn’t resist taking this picture of our beautiful abbey church. We have an abbey and Wells has a cathedral, the diocese is Bath and Wells. As Bath is a small city our abbey sits just right…

Bath Bun. If ever you visit the city of Bath, and you should, one thing you should try is the world famous Bath Bun. This one was from Sally Lunn’s, one of the oldest eating houses in Bath, where the original Bath Bun was created in Georgian times. I am happy to report that this…

Only 72 More Needed. At the Bath Farmers Market today we were entertained by these four trombonists playing Christmas tunes, we only needed another seventy two for the full set. They certainly livened things up a bit on a very cold morning. Most welcome. 13 December 2014

365 Project – Day 333

Life in Bath. As I have mentioned, Bath is a very Georgian city. What is not generally known though is that visitors are welcome to come and go as they please, as residents we are subject to certain regulations. Dress for example is strictly controlled; ladies are expected to wear a bonnet, gloves and a…

365 Project – Day 332

Bath Christmas Market. At this time of year up and down the country Christmas Markets are springing up everywhere. Acknowledged as one of the very best, Bath Christmas Market opened this week and will run for three weeks. For the market lots of wooden sheds – sorry chalets are set up and used as ‘pop…

Slammin’ Sam. At last, after about nine months waiting, we finally got to see ‘Slammin’ Sam Burgess run out for Bath Rugby. This is BIG news, at least in Bath. Sam Burgess is the latest in a line of players to switch code from Rugby League to Rugby Union. It was a great coup when…
