"Exploding Sheds" Bath Off The Beaten Path Tip by greebo

Bath Off The Beaten Path: 34 reviews and 35 photos

Whiteway is on the outskirts of Bath and is surrounded by many fields. There is a large comprehensive school which when it was being built, a large roman graveyard was discovered. You can find many roman coins and jewellery in the surround fields but do get the farmer's permission first. You may also find the odd roman as well!!!! The area was rocked by an explosion in the fifties, the explosion destroyed a shed and blew out several windows in the surrounding houses, a family member decided as a teenager whether they could make a homemade bomb, it worked and police have never found out the cause of the explosion, hmmm and there I was thinking that this person was supposed to teach me how to be responsible!!! The things you find out about your own family!!!!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
