STALL STREET 656-1/41/1607 (East side) North Colonnade at Grand Pump Room

(Formerly Listed as: North Colonnade at Grand Pump Room) 12/06/50

GV I

Colonnade. 1790. By Thomas Baldwin. MATERIALS: Limestone ashlar, roof hidden from street, but probably lead. EXTERIOR: Open colonnade with nine bays of unfluted Ionic columns which get progressively higher towards the south to accommodate fall in ground. Columns paired at either end where it abuts No.3 Stall Street and the Grand Pump Room (qqv). Entablature with enriched pediment, breaking slightly forward over three central bays to street elevation. Pediment contains relief Sphinxes facing wreathed oval with relief of Hygeia. Parapet with blind balustrade over second and sixth bays. Elevation to Abbey Church Yard six-bays only because of Nos 6-10 Abbey Church Yard (qv). HISTORY: Part of Baldwin's Neoclassical remodelling of the City centre, which followed the Bath Improvement Act of 1789. Together with the Grand Pump Room and South Colonnade adjoining (qv), these form some of the most monumental and ambitious civic improvements of their day in the country.
