In 1766, Gainsborough moved to The Circus, Horace Walpole took lodgings near the Cross Bath, John Wesley preached ‘in the midst of a piercing wind’ and Christopher Anstey published his satirical ‘New Guide to Bath’. On this walk, Andrew Swift and Kirsten Elliott use their words and those of others to conjure up the Bath of 250 years ago.
