Sad to report more vandalism along the stretch of railway line that passes through Bath’s Sydney Gardens.
It’s a section of the Great Western Railway that it’s builder – Isambard Kingdom Brunel – had been keen to show off as part of the new landscape he had created within the former Georgian pleasure grounds.
Mindless graffiti has now been sprayed along a retaining wall. It has to be done during daylight hours for the vandals to see what they are doing – as it’s the usual human version of a dog cocking its leg to ‘tag’ its territory.
I think the whole idea is for other vandals who delight in this rubbish to be able to recognise the identity of the tagger who has emblazoned his name in such a fashion.
It all adds to the general dereliction of the gardens – already looking pretty depressed without this new contribution to the general appearance of run-down neglect.
No one ever sees this happening. Or do they? Bath – you get the city you deserve. When will people start fighting back.
