Title: Bath flood defence scheme
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This brief National Rivers Authority (NRA) report describes the Bath flood defence scheme and actions held mainly on the River Avon. The city of Bath and its local water environment go hand-in-hand together. Today the view of the River Avon at Pulteney Bridge is a magnet for tourists, and famous throughout the world. But it was not always so. For in recent geological times the main tributaries of the Avon - the Somerset Frome and Midford Brook on the Mendips - were thought to be headwaters of the River Thames.
