History

The refronting of Stall Street with the setting back of the building lines was undertaken as a part of the improvements to the city centre following the Bath Improvement Act of 1789. The designs were first prepared by Thomas Baldwin, but the work was not undertaken until after 1800 and to modified designs. The Council Minutes record (20 March 1797) that John Palmer, City Architect, was asked to prepare plans to ascertain how far it was possible to improve Stall Street by setting back the fronts of the houses, and this is probably one such improvement.
