Quirky Bath: the smallest park in the city features a Victorian fountain and a bus stop – plus it runs along the side of a Roman road

The Gore in Bear Flat, Bath – the city’s smallest park

Plans are afoot to restore a Victorian drinking fountain in Bear Flat and to enhance the green space known as The Gore behind it. 
A group of residents of the south Bath community and part of the Bear Flat Association have tasked themselves with improving the green space and its Victorian fountain.
In Middle English the word gore is the word for a triangular strip of land and also for a spear point.
Wellsway runs on one side of the green and Bloomfield Road on the other – which is part of the old Roman road known as the Fosse Way. Full story in the December issue of Bath Voice magazine – out on December 1st.
