Ralph Allen’s Legacy

This coming Saturday 24 March together, with The Museums of Bath, we are going to celebrate the life and work of Ralph Allen. This will be held at Prior Park College (by kind permission of the Headmaster). This is a rare opportunity to see inside Ralph Allen’s mansion.
It will cost £10, including displays and talks by Bath Museums, a walk around the Park and tea before leaving. All the proceeds from this splendid day go towards the restoration of Ralph Allen’s Mausoleum at St. Mary’s in Claverton.
For further details please call 01225 833422

Wandering Cygnets

This blog is rapidly becoming the Cygnets show. They seem to have gone crazy, if not a  little bit naughty, this past 24 hours. By 5 pm yesterday they were spread all over the park, with one rescued by girls from our neighbours, Prior Park College, another rescued by the same girls and Matthew the Head gardener in the pasture above the Palladian Bridge, and the rest were spread about the bottom lakes. But now as I write they are all together (7 of them) floating serenely (sort of) on the lakes by the bridge. Probably hatching another jaunt!
