Re: Bath Avenue, Morriston

Would like the story to be true ,like the steam train that was buried below the pitch at Wembley as they could not get it out.
The area of Cwm Bath was the site of an alum industry in the 18th and containers( baths) were used to separate the chemicals in the local shale . These are mentioned in "Copperopolis" as the possible root of the name for "Bath Lane" . It would be interesting to know if the relics of that industry are buried below the surface somewhere!

Re: Bath Avenue, Morriston

Just a follow up on your kind response to my query about Bath Avenue. I have passed your comments on to the lady who sent me the original question and she has arranged for the mobile library to take a copy of Copperopolis to her father with his next delivery of books. Thank you once again!
