    When Bath was being developed early in the 20th century a man called Ralph Allan was mining the Bath Stone. He has a school named after him and several streets and roads. At one point he decided he wanted to build a castle over looking the city, he began this project but ran out of money. So on the east side of the city there is the facade of castle, called Sham Castle. This is also a nice walk from the city. The easiest way to reach it is via Sham Lane. An OS map is advised when walking the footpaths around the city.

    Alexandra Park is situated on top of a Hill ot the south of the city, by Beechan Cliff School,in an area called Bearflat.
    It has spectacular views over the city, and is a nice walk if you are staying in the Widcombe area.

    Streets like this one take you back in time.

    Luckily we had a map. The town centre is full of quirky little streets. It makes shopping a real adventure.
