One of our roundels is missing.

I am currently relying on my partner – or a taxi – to get around on four wheels.

I have a brand new electric bike ( from Take Charge) that l haven’t been able to try out, and a new knee support from Boots in Southgate to support my short bouts of hobbling.

Enough torn ligament pity – but it explains why some of the following shots were taken from a car.

Congratulations to Bath BID and Bath in Bloom and all the volunteers who turned the vacant but earth filled trough fronting the Manvers Street car park into a regular cottage garden. It’s an oasis of colour to brighten one traffic-choked street.

And look how Extinction Rebellion have tidied up this space by the Hilton Hotel at the city end of Walcot Street. It’s a powerful message so l hope the local graffiti vandals won’t cover it with their cheap and meaningless scrawls.

Margaret’s Buildings is a vibrant little shopping quarter between Royal Crescent and The Circus and – like other retail areas in the city – has had its ups and downs.

Eight Holland Street is a newcomer and occupies one of the most beautiful shop interiors in the area. Good luck to them.

Finally, on this shuffle around Bath, we hear so much about 3-D printing being useful in replicating objects. l notice one of the decorative daisy roundels is missing on the up-city side of Cleveland Bridge.

It’s one of the country’s finest late Georgian bridges in Greek Revival Style and originally built in 1827 with later additions.

Whether it’s natural wear, or a prankster’s trophy, l wonder if the roundel could be replaced in a tough material using this new means of replica production?

Could anyone at either of our two universities help out?
