What's unusual about this little parade of shops in Bath?
When my husband first brought me along this road, and asked approximately that question, I was stumped.
I had a good look around: it's a sweet little road, with a number of boutique and independent shops, but nothing that really stood out.
Then, he walked me round to where you can see the other side of the same buildings:
When you're on the street it doesn't feel like a bridge at all. You could walk - or drive - across, and never be any the wiser if no-one told you. Whoever thought of this was a genius... isn't it adorable?
Here's another view, this time from the path along the river. I'd love to go inside one of the little rooms 'downstairs' inside the supports, with the little round windows.
