Trams in Bath – 1904 – 1939

vintage Bath electric tram

This is the previous tram network in red (mainline GWR/S&D) rail in black) which was discontinued in 1939. See Appendix I in “The History of Bath Trams”­– note the line ran out to Newton St Loe.

The evidence of Bath’s past as a tram city is still to be seen  – the pictures here show where the overhead lines were bolted to buildings.
