Upper Church Street
This photograph was taken a while after the bombing, and the scale of the destruction can be clearly seen. Note the red brick repairs to the buildings in the background to make them habitable again. Before the bombing, the chimney stacks and the end wall would have been entirely constructed in Bath stone. The wartime priority was to provide usable homes rather than historically correct repairs.
Flattened areas became playgrounds for local children.
