Bath Preservation Trust kicks off 2017 with a team outing on Kelston Roundhill

Bath Preservation Trust was set up to in the 1930s to save historic Bath from being cut in half by a new road. Now the Trust safeguards the historic character and amenities of the town with planning advice and education. It also owns and runs four local museums: 1 Royal Crescent, Herschel Museum, the Museum of Bath Architecture and our neighbour across the valley Beckford’s Tower.

It’s a small, independent charity with a huge workload, so we were delighted when they chose to kick off 2017 with a day off and a team visit to Kelston Roundhill including lunch in the Old Barn.

They help many owners and managers around Bath, us included. They supported the protection of the Clump with a grant towards fencing, and are integral to much that goes on in the local built environment and landscape, including the successful Bathscape bid.

On a crystal clear day the team had a bracing and spectacular walk from Beckford’s Tower, coffee and a fireside chat at the Old Barn, followed by lunch before heading back to the Tower across the valley via Prospect Style.
