Panorama of Bath from near Sion Hill c.1756-8

Description

From a collection of 45 sketches of Bath by Thomas Robins the Elder (1716-1770) By kind permission of V&A Images. This view is drawn over two pages and even includes the distant glass works at Odd Down and Cley Hill, near Warminster. In the middle is the partially built Circus; its construction was fraught with difficulties and Robins shows the period when only the south-west segment had been built. The stark white gable end of the house at the top of Gay Street is peculiar to see as it would soon be seamlessly connected to the Circus. The towers of the Abbey, St. James and St. Michael's churches add variety to the skyline, whilst the undeveloped Barton fields stretch to the right. Red pen and grey wash; inscribed No. 17.
