AT BATHEASTON AND THEN OVER THE AVON INTO BATH ITSELF

AT BATHEASTON AND THEN OVER THE AVON INTO BATH ITSELF

The last village before entering Bath is Batheaston. Here a little stream called St. Catherine's brook comes down to join the Avon, and by it is St. Catherine's Court, a beautiful old English grange built by Prior Cantlow towards the end of the fifteenth century. There are some beautiful terraced gardens, laid out with a care which is worthy of an old manor of Bath Priory. The porch of St. Catherine's is particularly fine and dates from the reign of Charles I, and just outside the gardens is Batheaston church.
