Taking a peep.

It’s obvious if you are walking through York Street that work continues apace on the new Heritage and Learning Centres being constructed as part of the Roman Bath’s Archway Project.

It’s named after the decorative archway that disguised pipe work running to the old laundry that is now being transformed for its new role.

As l am on the mailing list for an ‘Archway Project Update’ – l can share the following with you. It’s the first time in a while we have been able to see how work is progressing inside!

“Building work has continued safely throughout the second lockdown and the spaces now look magnificent! Both the North and South learning spaces have large skylights giving lots of natural light and an interesting view of the boiler house chimney.

These spaces will now be called Sulis and Minerva. The next two transformational actions will be the installation of stairs in the Clore Learning Centre and the forming of walkways at the underground level.

Save the date for GivingTuesday

Next week, The Roman Baths Foundation will take part in GivingTuesday. It is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organisations to transform their communities and their world. This global day of ‘giving back’ takes place 1st December 2020.

The Roman Baths Foundation needs to raise some of the lost income for The Archway Project, which disappeared due to the COVID crisis. If you came to the Roman Baths during the summer and autumn, you will know that the site went cashless. This included the removal of donation boxes, to make the site COVID-safe for everyone. Sadly, this meant the loss of £7,000 for the Clore Learning Centre and World Heritage Centre. Your donation on GivingTuesday will help complete these new fantastic spaces for young people, community groups and visitors to Bath.

To take part you can follow the Roman Baths on FacebookTwitter or Instagram or sign up to The Roman Baths Foundation Newsletter. Please share the GivingTuesday campaign with your friends and family.
