Great Pulteney Street in Bath

Great Pulteney Street is a broad thoroughfare connecting Bathwick with the City of Bath via Pulteney Bridge. The View from the Bath side of the bridge extends to the Holburne Museum of Art.

Great Pulteney Street was commissioned by Sir William Pulteney, and it was designed by the architect Thomas Baldwin. Baldwin only constructed the facade, however, which means that, although outwardly similar, the properties have different interior layouts. Great Pulteney Street was erected between 1789 and 1792.
