This lecture will be delivered in a hybrid format – you can attend via Zoom from your home and in person at the Widcombe Social Club.
Location Widcombe Social Club
Widcombe Social Club is situated at the bottom of Widcombe Hill within walking distance of the Bus and Railway Stations. From the City, the quickest route on foot (a 10-minute stroll) is to walk over the footbridge at the rear of Bath Spa Rail Station. Cross over the A36 at the pedestrian lights and turn left along Widcombe Parade (where there are lots of nice local shops and places to eat).
Cross over the junction with Prior Park Road. The Social Club is on the left at the bottom of Widcombe Hill.
The number 2 bus, from bus stop BK across the road from the train station will take you one stop to Widcombe.
There is very little parking locally. The closest car park is in Southgate which is not far from the Bus Station.
