Bath’s famous for its buskers – though not everyone is happy about the amplifiers they are taking in tow around their pitches – but you just have to marvel at the variety of entertainers and entertainment.

These three brass players were giving it out for the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah on Stall Street.

Further up the hill, l worry about the paving stones making up so many of our footpaths.

Another mystery inscription spotted in Great Pulteney Street too. No one has been able to help me explain the initials ‘B.C.’ – spotted already along this famous avenue -and now – at the Sydney Gardens end – what does ‘500’ mean?

Meanwhile the Pump Rooms has a new temporary roof as workmen get down to repairing the real one!

Scaffolding – at least in Abbey Churchyard – taking on an artistic beauty of its own? What do you think.

PS. Opposite the narrow boats on the Kennet and Avon Canal – a new ‘temporary’ residence has appeared.

Always something new to see in this city of ever-changing faces and places.
