Camden Crescent

What is it?

Camden Crescent was planned to consist of twenty-two houses, with another ten in flanking wings that would rise steeply up the hillside (five on each end). Designed in 1787-8 by John Eveleigh, only the five in the south-west wing (off the photo to the left) and sixteen houses of the Crescent were built (and are currently numbered from 1 to 21). Work on the north-east six houses and the five in the wing were abandoned following landslips.

Where is it in Bath?
