"When you stand beside the Pulteney Weir and look towards the Pulteney bridge you have so much to see as you ponder the history before you. The bridge was built in 1770 and it’s influence was the Ponte Vicchio bridge in Florence so has little shops along each side of the bridge - unique to England I think and only one of a few in the world. One day I popped in to one of the tiny shops and asked the owner if I could take some photos looking back down to the unusually shaped weir, he was quite happy for me to do so - pleasing view too. River watchers will have plenty to appreciate about this section of the Avon River as it comes down through the three old stone arches toward the Pulteney Weir which was rebuilt in 1974 to enable pleasure craft to come through and moor near the park on the opposite side from this virtual tour vantage point. Canal boats (narrow boats) often park here and use the facilities of beautiful, Georgian Bath township to stock up or they just join the thousands of tourists who gravitate to this superb part of Britain. This river section of the Grand Parade is definitely interesting and close to all that Bath has to offer, so be sure to include it on your visit whether you take the Hop on Hop Off bus or just pick up a map and walk the area yourself. I do recommend the tourist bus as they do share a really excellent commentary on Pulteney Bridge and Weir. You are best to go on the tour first, learn about the two and then spend time at your leisure shopping at the boutique-type shops on the bridge and then stroll in to town and visit the old covered market, Bath Abbey, the Roman Baths or even the Sally Lunn bakery, all part of getting the best out of your Bath tourist visit. "

"Been there but wish the shot had more of the bridge and the traffic intersection."
