Cavendish Crescent, Bath
|Location||Bath, Somerset, England|
|Architect||John Pinch the elder|
|Official name: 1-11 Cavendish Crescent|
|Designated||12 June 1950|
Cavendish Crescent in Bath, Somerset, is a Georgian crescent built in the early 19th century to a design by the architect John Pinch the elder. At 11 houses, it is the shortest of the seven Georgian crescents in Bath. It also has one of the plainest facades, with no central feature, the only decoration being the consoles over the central first floor window of each house.
Cavendish crescent was undertaken by William Broom, a builder by trade. Broom leased the land on which the crescent is built and then engaged Pinch to design the facade. However all did not go according to Broom's plans and he went bankrupt in 1825. The crescent was finished some 5 years later.
