Flying the flag in New Bond Street.

Flying the flag in New Bond Street.

Some observations on street life in Bath today as l walked around New Bond Street. A cold wind providing a very effective flutter for what must be the most impressive Union flag dangling over a shop-front in the city. It’s the Bath branch of the Savile Row tailors Gieves and Hawkes and some welcome red, white and blue on a grey morning.

Replacing paving slabs on  Union Street.

Elsewhere on the street a B&NES workman – wrapped up against the cold – is busy replacing cracked paving stones and doing a fine job. It must be a pretty on-going occupation at that.

The old and the new meet on the High Street!

Out on to the High Street and the hope that this is not going to be the permanent way the new paving of the re-vamped pedestrianised areas will be merging with the existing slabs?!
