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. Designed in 1787-8 by John Eveleigh, only the south-west wing (to the left of the photo) and sixteen houses of the Crescent were built. Work on the north-east six houses and the wing were abandoned following landslips.

Where is it in Bath?

Camden Crescent is to the north of the city centre, off Lansdown Road, occupying a prominent site high above the London Road.
