With almost 3 weeks break in-between jobs, it’s time to explore, so I’m heading to Bath and Chelmsford.

 

First stop is Bath, a town known for its natural hot springs and 18th-century Georgian architecture. Honey-coloured Bath stone has been used extensively in the town’s architecture, including Bath Abbey, which has some stunning stained-glass windows. There’s also a museum at the site of the original Roman-era Baths, which includes The Great Bath, statues and a temple.

 

I’m looking forward to a week of exploring! 

Chelmsford, credited as the “birthplace of radio”, was an important centre for light engineering production during WW2 and was attacked from the air on several occasions, both by aircraft of the Luftwaffe and by missile. Besides the 18-arch Victorian Railway Viaduct that carries the Great Eastern Main Line through Central Park, Chelmsford also has a Gothic style cathedral, built in the 1200’s.

 

Lots of exploring to do, many photos waiting to be created!
