Street Record, South Parade, City Centre
14 South Parade is a Grade I Georgian townhouse designed by John Wood the Elder, situated within the core of the Bath conservation area and World Heritage site. It was originally intended as part of the unfinished Abbey Orchard development south of Parade Gardens. The western end of the terrace similarly features an incised street sign for South Parade with surviving traces of paint apparent.
In the interest of transparency, we would like to highlight that the Trust does financially contribute to the work of the World Heritage Enhancement Fund.
We feel this application will positively contribute to and enhance the appearance of a Grade I listed building and the character and appearance of the Bath conservation area, whilst conserving an aspect of Bath’s Georgian streetscape and town planning OUV as a World Heritage site. We feel this is a positive example of the improvement and conservation of one of Bath’s distinctive historic and aesthetic characteristics which define the public realm.
