An urban walk that explores the first cholera outbreak in Bath in 1832. The 1830s was a time of political and social division in Britain, with tensions running high. At this very moment a terrible disease arrived in the country – the Cholera Morbus.
It seemed to afflict old and young alike, doctors were baffled by its cause, and for some of its victims it led to a terrible end. Explore how the city of Bath responded to the epidemic and its aftermath, on this guided history walk.
The walk leader is Dr Molly Conisbee.
The walk will begin and end at the main entrance of Bath Abbey. It is an easy, pavement-based walk, and will last a little over an hour.
The walk is suitable for older children, with an interest in history and gory details!
