There’s a crane on the skyline.

Regular reader Ann Godfrey has been keeping an eye on Bath’s skyline. In particular the bit above the residential redevelopment of the old MOD site at Foxhill.

She writes:

Have you noticed that the crane at Fox Hill is clearly visible over the trees to the south of the city, seen from Lansdown Rd near St Stephen’s church and from Camden Row? Below Camden Crescent it is masked by Beechen Cliff.

Awkward question: is this an indicator that roofs of taller Mulberry Park buildings could also be visible, if the prolonged planning process goes the developers’ way? Which would, of course, be wholly contrary to the WHS ‘city in a bowl’ ethos and constitutes a potential source of shame to B&NES council.
Ann has supplied photographic evidence to make her point. She has also had a bit of an update on the development.

“I’ve had further correspondence with the Case Officer and am assured that the professionals are well aware of potential height problems with Phase 2 of Mulberry Park, vis-a-vis the WHS.”
Publication of this story brought a rapid Twitter response from Bath Preservation Trust.
