The Sack of Bath 40 years on

Adam Fergusson’s renowned 1973 book The Sack of Bath managed to halt the headlong destruction of those times, and saved some much-loved corners of the city, such as Walcot St, from the bulldozers. Adam Fergusson revisited the city on July 24 to appeal again for Bath’s future with a talk at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution. Caroline Kay, Chief Executive of Bath Preservation Trust, also spoke at the event to give her perspective on the issues facing Bath and its setting today.
