Ssssssssh – it’s a hospital!

Reconstruction road works in Bath’s Saw Close has revealed the underlying setts that once made up the surface of Upper Borough Wall.


The road surface being cut through in Upper Borough Walls.

With the National Hospital – better known today as ‘The Min’ and home of the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases – lying to one side – wooden blocks were used to deaden the noise of horses hooves and carriage wheels passing outside.


Hopefully you can see the wooden road blocks beneath the concrete.
