The Southgate development site - cleared, March 1972


© This image is not to be copied or published without permission


Georgian and medieval Southgate was flattened to make way for the fated shopping centre. Note the monolithic neo-Georgiana beyond. Lord Snowdon visited Bath in March 1972, to capture the devastation caused by the 'sack of Bath'. This is one of 21 images published in Adam Fergusson's seminal book of the same name. Bath in Time has exclusively secured with the kind permission of Lord Snowdon, the contents of the entire shoot, many of which are in full colour.
