Lost Bridgwater

Welcome
Introduction
The following series of articles seek to explore the history of Bridgwater through its lost architectural heritage. These stories will be fascinating in their own right, an insight into the changing needs and demands of the towns folk over time, in the creation, changing uses and destruction of their standing structures.

The project is also conducted in mind of the cliche: 'to appreciate what you have, you have to understand what's been lost.' It is hoped that it will create a greater awareness of the need to appreciate our civic environment and avoid some of the careless and mindless destruction and neglect that is ever present through these accounts.
