Smithsons in Bath – Saturday 28th April 2018 11am to 4pm
Led by Amy Frost
A walk through Bath following one of Peter Smithson’s ‘Walks within the Walls’, published in his 1971 book. This truncated version of ‘Walk 4’ will include Green Park and Queen Square, following Peter Smithson ‘in bumbling about the pavements of Regency Bath’ as his son Simon Smithson describes.
The subsequent tour of Alison and Peter Smithson’s Bath University buildings – set within the RMJM campus masterplan (1965 onwards) – will allow comparison of points of interest from the morning walk with their built work.
Meet at 11.00 am at the junction of Holloway and Wellsway – meet outside Rolfey’s Antique Shop. Buses run regularly from Bath Spa Station up the Wells Road (Bear Flat stop).
Lunch: 1.00 pm – 2.30 pm find your own
Finish at 4.00 pm at Bath University
