As soon as John Wood the Elder designed the Circus, Lansdown Hill became the northern expansion of fashionable 18th century Bath. But it was in the 19th century that Lansdown Road became one of the key locations to showcase shifts in modern architectural style, instigated by the building of Beckford’s Tower in 1827.
Join Dr Amy Frost on a walk up Lansdown exploring the architectural highlights of Bath’s great north road (with a few diversions off it).
The walk will take 90 minutes or so, starting at Lansdown Crescent and finishing at Beckford’s Tower, there are buses back down the hill from Lansdown Road. The walk is uphill, mainly on pavements.
