Bath Time - 1
We are taking a short break from Gecko to do some redecorating in our house in Bath which we let for holidays. Click here to see what you have been missing
If you listened to the BBC Radio 4 programme on Tom Rolt you will no doubt remember the description of how Brunel constructed a theatrical passage through Sydney Gardens in Bath for the GWR.
This has long been a favourite view of mine and judging by the number of benches I am not alone in enjoying the spectacle of trains at close hand.
What the BBC did not tell us is that Network Rail have decided that it is too dangerous and so they are going to erect railings along this stretch. I guess Mr L. Finn Safety was not around 170 years ago when it was constructed.
