I have plenty more photos from Woodchester but I figure I might lose the DP family connection if I don’t revisit Bath for some nice autumn colors. This is the south wing of John Wood the Elder’s Queen’s Square west townhouse development. It’s importance comes largely in its immitation of a large palacial residence. This palace-like townhouse subdivision housing development spread throughout Britain and was highly influential in Edinburough’s Newtown plan.
