I make no apologies for spending nearly twenty minutes on Zoom chatting to Caroline Kay who is CEO of Bath Preservation Trust.
We talked about how a lifeline government-administered grant will help keep them going, why they have decided to stop having room guides at No 1, and how they will manage their museums in the future – using technology as well as people.
Caroline was also able to give me some good news about damage to the obelisk in Queen Square and her opinion on other heritage hotspots at risk – like the Pulteney Bridge balustrade and Laura Place Fountain.
She also explained why – while the city looks for new revenue streams – it can never turn its back on its heritage assets.
Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy.
