Bath - a tourist city on our doorstep
August Bank holiday - and a day out on Sunday revealed busy roads in the extreme; best to explore somewhere local. This summer, we've not travelled any great distances - not because we're looking to avoid all the chaos that's been going on at the airports, but because of 'the Manor project' that I mention here from time to time ... both because we've not wanted to be away for more than the day, and because we're learning that much more about our own locale so that we can better provide information for our visitors. And there are some real gems.
The town of Frome is only about 12 miles from us, although its across in the next county in the extreme corner of Somerset. A place I had just passed through many times over the years we've lived in the area and never stopped. But it turned out to be a real jewel. Quaint little streets, interesting shops and cafes, a river running through the centre, a museum ...and somewhere that we'll go back and explore in more detail in the future. (more pictures)
Bath, again only 12 miles from Melksham, is enormously famous and with plenty for the visitor to do ... and we don't even need to take the car as the bus that passes right by our place is in the heart of the City well within 30 minutes.. On Sunday afternoon, Bath was crowded but comfortable and what a glorious way to spend the public holiday - walking by the river, listening to the band striking up in the park, and eating an ice cream.
