Lottery funding for Bath landscape.

Bath really is the city with the green fringe around the top. Topographically speaking we really are blessed to be still – pretty much – surrounded by fields and trees. Our landscape setting is one of the reasons the city was awarded its World Heritage status back in 1987.

Making sure we both appreciate our hill-top surroundings and – maybe more importantly interact with them – has been the aim of Bathscape.

It’s the name of a coming together of many city organisations as varied as B&NES and the city’s two universities, to the National & Woodland trusts and Bath Preservation Trust – with the aim of reconnecting people to the countryside around the city.

Just a portion of the people who gathered at the Roman Baths last night.

Last night at the Roman Baths – another reason for our World Heritage status – representatives came together to celebrate a big National Lottery Grant which will fund five years of work.
