Bath is Twinned with Alkmaar which is celebrating it's 750th anniversary this year (2004). There is an Alkmaar Twin City cache here.
Bath was built by the Romans around its hot spring waters around 2,000 years ago. The Saxons built a huge Abbey in the 800s which was the site for the Coronation of the first King of all England, Edgar, in 973. The Abbey was re-built in the 1400s and still shows the scars of the English civil war in the 1640s. The Victorians re-discovered the Roman Baths which have since been restored to a magnificent condition.
Bath became popular again in the 1700s due to its "restorative waters", resulting in a massive building programme. All buildings were constructed in a similar style, in a similar stone, resulting in its beautiful architecture. The Royal Crescent, Pump Rooms, Theatre Royal and Assembley Rooms are particularly recommended. For more information on the City of Bath visit this web site.
The cache is located with excellent views over Bath on the Cotswold Way. It is close to Bath (Lansdown) Racecourse, which may complicate the approach to the cache on racedays (although I did place the cache on a raceday and walked straight through the middle of the racecourse without a problem. More information about the Racecourse is here.
An Ordnance Survey map for the parking location is available at this web site.
