  What you can do with oolite
by iandsmith

Into history? You'll love Bath. Names just roll off the tongue. Try William Pitt, Gainsborough (dab hand with a brush - pardon the pun), William Wilberforce, Lord Clive, David Livingstone, Governor Arthur Phillip (my Aussie connection) just to name a few.
An interesting sidelight to Phillip is that he died when his wheelchair went through an upstairs window.
This building houses an art gallery and souvenir shop and, just to the right, out of picture, is a devonshire tea house where you can indulge indoors or al fresco.
The Holburne gallery is, according to informed sources, not as well maintained as the nearby Victorian gallery.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
