Bathwick - Failed Opportunities?

In the 1760s, Bathwick, to the east of the centre of Bath, across the River Avon, became an attractive proposition for development. William Johnstone engaged Robert Adam to build a new crossing over the Avon - Pulteney Bridge, completed in 1770. Later in 1777 Johnstone commissioned Adam to produce an overall plan and designs for the "new town development" of Bathwick between what is now Cleveland Bridge to the north and the railway line to the south.

Adam prepared a number of options including broad roads fanning out from circuses and crescents facing the river.

In the event, Adam's proposals were abandoned in favour of a design by Thomas Baldwin.

Work started in 1788 and continued until finances collapsed in 1793. What did get built was not as impressive as it was planned, short streets off Great Pulteney Street for example were never completed (Sunderland Street).

Great Pulteney Street itself has the grand proportions planned - it is 335 metres long and 31 metres wide. At its eastern end Baldwin planned a hotel with central portico facing the street. Following his bancruptcy, the scheme was taken on by Charles Harcourt Masters who in 1796 built what became after later alteration the Holburne Museum, a fine building in itself providing a fine termination to the Great Pulteney Street vista.

Baldwin's plan was to build elongated hexagonal terraces off Great Pulteney Street, only two sides of which came to be built.

Bathwick Street, we see here, was built by Baldwin in the 1790s. Daniel Street, on the left in this picture was built by Pinch in 1810.
