Turn around, and you will see the only surviving medieval gate of the city - East Gate. It leads to the river, and all water-borne goods and travelers arrived here - including smuggled goods from the Severn Estuary, gateway to the High Seas.
Just about 100 feet away is where H.I. and I live, perched right on the foundations of the eastern wall of the approach to the city. This includes the only surviving remains of the medieval wall (about 50 feet) which was not knocked down by the Georgians.
Georgian Bath is about 15 feet higher than the earlier city, as you can see from these pictures.
I will soon travel the underground passages once owned by a famous Bath musical vendor who has just gone bankrupt after 170 years of trading. These tunnels are 20 feet away from where I now write.
How lucky I am.
