Enhancement Fund

Bath World Heritage Enhancement Fund

The fund is a partnership between the World Heritage Site Steering Group, Bath and North East Somerset Council and Bath Preservation Trust.

It has three aims:

  • to initiate and organise minor enhancements to Bath's heritage;
  • to assist and encourage others to undertake such work;
  • to organise volunteers for the same purpose.

The Fund has organised or participated in over 50 projects across the World Heritage Site.  These projects are almost always in partnership with other organisations, from community groups to national bodies such as the National Trust. Details of the projects are outlined in the Enhancement Fund's annual newsletters. Ideas for further projects, especially those concerned with the heritage attributes on which Bath's World Heritage Site status is based, are always welcome.

We are very grateful for the financial support of our partners.

Links to the Enhancement Fund's newsletters are below.

The Enhancement Fund has published two city trails for Bath - a 1.5 hour World Heritage City Trail and a Nelson Trail highlighting connections between Admiral Lord Nelson and Bath.

The Enhancement Fund has commissioned and published the first in a series of illustrated reports about heritage features in the World Heritage Site.  The report can be downloaded using this link, Watchman's Box report.
