  Lemon Street
by sandysmith

Favorite thing: Lemon Street, built in 1801, was a new road for the ever increasing mail coaches that had great difficulty negotiating the existing steep routes into the town. indeed the road squeezes in to the town after this and over to the cathedral.

Plots of land owned by Sir William Lemon, a mining magnate of his day, were leased for building. The houses seen here are purported to be the finest example of Georgian architecture west of the city of Bath. today they are occupied by solictors and dentists etc...
