Poor, beleaguered Westgate Street. Scaffolding on one side means no safe footpath for pedestrians – while vehicles on the other make it so dangerous.
It’s got to be the most ugly, damaged thoroughfare in the centre of Bath. The private yard to one side of Greggs is also a filthy mess. I have already emailed Environmental Health about it.
Meanwhile it’s good to see the ground floor of the re-built and still war-scarred Labour Exchange in James Street West is now occupied. Upstairs is student accommodation and on pavement level – and open to the general public too – Nisbets Catering Equipment.
It’s a company – based in Bristol’s Avonmouth district – spreading its wings into Bath. Very often re-developments end up with the retail space lying empty for ages This one didn’t.
While in the area l popped along to the River Avon to see if the newly re-shaped riverbank was now open to the public. The cycle path is – though there are signs saying get off your bike!
Across the river work c continues on facing the newly-constructed cement flood barriers with something more fitting for our World Heritage city!
