With Bath’s amazing Roman remains – and outstanding Georgian architecture – it will come as no surprise to hear that there are plenty of guide books and histories in the bookshops to choose when you come to look around this World Heritage city.
There are plenty of guided tours to join too.
So what’s different about the city ‘trails’ being created by volunteers at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution.
Well l can tell you.
The people creating them are all under the age of 18 – and these are self-guided walks designed with young people in mind!
So far they’ve published leaflets covering everything from Adelard – the local man who became England’s first mathematician – to a Science Trail that will introduce you to Bath’s famous scientists, explorers and inventors.
The latest leaflet being prepared involves finding out more about a modest park area on the doorstep of the BRSLI – the lawn in Queen Square.
The youngsters involved in research are members of the Young BRSLI or Science Cadets – and they need your help.
They still need to hear from anyone with a story to tell which involves the tree-covered lawn in the middle of Queen Square – so they can expand on its social history.
I asked Coordinator, Lisa Buddrus to tell me more.
If you think you can help with the Queen Square research or want to find out more information about the trail leaflets or Young BRSLI then the contact email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Institution is also recruiting for the BRSLI Young Researchers. So please look below!
