Artist's Description


Pulteney Bridge, Bath, England, UK

Pulteney Bridge is a bridge that crosses the River Avon, in Bath, England. It was completed in 1773 and is designated by English Heritage as a grade I listed building.

The bridge was designed by Robert Adam, whose working drawings are preserved in the Sir John Soane’s Museum, and is one of only four bridges in the world with shops across the full span on both sides.

It is named after Frances Pulteney, heiress in 1767 of the Bathwick estate across the river from Bath. Bathwick was a simple village in a rural setting, but Frances’s husband William could see its potential. He made plans to create a new town, which would become a suburb to the historic city of Bath. First he needed a better river crossing than the existing ferry, hence the bridge.
