Not the easiest of places to keep clean l suppose but having a basement area exposed to the elements – to enable light to reach down to the lower windows – does have its drawbacks.
I am talking about Bath’s imposing Georgian Guildhall where I couldn’t help but notice that the Victorian extensions appear to have become a bit of a ‘dropping zone’.
The basement areas are hidden from general view – unless you lean over the stone balustrade and peer down into them.
This is probably why that particular architecture detail seems to have created an ideal place to toss a bit of litter without anyone pulling you up for just dropping it on the pavement.
Time for a clear up maybe?
