ST7464 : Pigeon Park

near to Bath, Bath And North East Somerset, Great Britain

Pigeon Park
Pigeon Park
Now a small area of peace and greenery amid the busy traffic in central Bath, this was once a cemetery belonging to St James. New grounds were opened up in 1861 on the Lower Bristol Road, and this became a popular place for people. A memorial was also placed here recently, adding to the reverence. See ST7464 : Road Peace memorial in Pigeon Park for more. Oddly the name is uncertain - the locals simply refer to it as Pigeon Park and for obvious reasons!
