Thieves In Da Council

Canalside Bath 12092009 032 (1)

I’ve pondered these buildings many times over the past 25 years on my daily commute to Bristol as the train often stops opposite them on the way into Bath. I could never understand why Georgian houses could be left in such a state. It seems they were compulsorily purchased for a scheme which never reached fruition. Since then they’ve become a squat, a drugs den, a target for graffiti and goodness knows what else.

According to the signs on the railings at street level, planning permission is now being sought to convert them into flats.
