Bath Preservation Trust celebrates it’s 80th birthday this year with a new exhibition which reveals the part the organisation has played in saving and conserving many of the historical amenities in the city
Saving Bath: 80 Years of Building Conservation explores the last 80 years of building conservation in Bath, revealing what was saved, what was lost and what challenges are yet to come.
Bath Preservation Trust was established on 1934 when the heart of the city was threatened with demolition through the proposed Bath Bill. For the following 80 years, through the damage of the Bath Blitz and the Sack of Bath to the current threats to the surroundings of the city through urban expansion, the Trust has been at the forefront of conservation campaigning.
Bath Preservation Trust is dedicated to conserving for the benefit of the public the historic character and amenities of the city of Bath and its surroundings and a visit to this exhibition is essential for anyone who shares this aim.
Saving Bath: 80 Years of Building Conservationruns until 5 May 2014 at No.1 Royal Crescent. Open on Mondays from 12.00 to 17.30, Tuesday-Sunday from 10.30 to 17.30. This exhibition is free but does not include admission to the main house.The exhibition has been made possible with support from Bath and North East Somerset Council.
