Happy birthday Àlex!
The first sight most visitors have of Bath Abbey is the West front, with its unique ladders of Angels.
Dan, our guide, told us the story behind this. It is that the Bishop of Bath, Oliver King, is said to have had a dream of angels ascending and descending into heaven which inspired the design and which also inspired him to build a new Abbey church – the last great medieval cathedral to have been built in England
UNESCO added The City of Bath as a 'cultural site' to its World Heritage List in 1987. Bath is included because of its Roman Remains, 18th Century Architecture, 18th Century Town Planning, Social Setting, Hot Springs and Landscape Setting.
In Georgian Times, thousands gathered for parties and balls.
