© This image is not to be copied or published without permission
Never mind Bath Rugby or Park and Ride on the meadows, the proposal in 1945 was to hand the land over to heavy Industry. The Batheaston bypass, complete with spur to A36 is included. A report prepared for the Bath and District joint Planning Committee by Sir Patrick Abercrombie, John Owens and H. Anthony Mealand. A comprehensive report published immediately after the war assessing Bath's present and future. Accompanied by many illustrations, this visionary work was never executed in full, its legacy was the Bus Station and estates in Twerton.
