Bath Road

PLACES > Streets
Bath Road was the principal road into the town being the Bristol to Oxford route.
The road was turnpiked in 1743 and in 1774 the turnpike commissioners employed a local mason, Thomas Webb to build Bath Bridge.  Levelling commenced in November 1774 and the bridge completed in April 1776.   Previously the road was very steep and dangerous was into the town.  This established the route as the main entrance into the town from the south.
This part of the town was enhanced by the building of the new church and Bath Bridge in the 1770s;

The Old Coach House is understood to date from around 1870 and was built alongside the large family house next door - both to coincide with the forthcoming railway line to the Bath Road that never materialised.

No 6 The Old Toll House
This cottage apparently built c1750-60 but the architectural character appears to be rather later. The road was turnpiked in 1743 but the new bridge built in 1775 must have made the use of this cottage rather difficult and it was superceded in 1821. It is unusual to have two toll houses surviving so close to each other.
