A project exploring the tall towers and soaring spires of the city of Bath and how they stand as landmarks to ambition, religion, and escape, in partnership with Bath Abbey.
In a city famed for its Georgian buildings, many of the towers in Bath celebrate the Victorian period, when the revival of Gothic architectural style led to the city skyline being punctuated with new spires and smoking chimneys.
Twentieth century Bath saw new towers being added to the city but many of the early towers were also lost, destroyed in 1942 during the Second World War bombing of Bath.
Follow the Towers of Bath trail to explore some (they wouldn’t all fit!) of the tall towers and soaring spires of Bath and discover how they stand as landmarks to ambition, religion, and escape. You can download the trail sheet here.
