    Not the biggest or most impressive English cathedral by any means, this is still a nice one because of the history of Bath and the location of the abbey, next to the Roman baths.

    Let the sun shine in

    The very clear stained glass windows of Bath Abbey, with the Moses holding the Ten Commandments being the ovbious centrepiece.

    spectacular cathedral

    Bath Abbey, from the outside

    In the heart of downtown, the Bath Abbey can be found. It's somewhat unassuming on the outside, you have to go inside to get a true appreciation.

    Bath Abbey and The Roman Bath

    This is the square infront of Bath Abbey (entrance to Roman Baths is on the right).

    There are restaurants, ice cream shops, department stores and street musicians in this busy area.

    A detail of the wood carving inside the abbey

    While most of the attention goes to the fan vault and the stained glass windows, don't miss the details of the carved wooden pews.

    The beautiful fan vaulting of the abbey

    The earliest churches here were Anglo-Saxon [757] and Norman [1090]. The present Abbey church was founded in 1499. The famous fan-vaulted ceiling was designed in the early 16th century.

    Dating from 1499, Bath Abbey is in the centre of the city. The carvings on the front of the Abbey were recently restored and show off the honey colours of Bath stone untouched by exhaust pollution.

    the cathedral

    by HeidiR Written Sep 2, 2002

    Bath is a great tourist city so you must go and see the cathedral. In the back street near the cathedrals there are some great fudge shops
