Property description

St Swithin's Yard is located off the east side of Walcot Street towards its north end. Archaeology has shown this to have been an important part of Roman Bath.

Walcot Street is known for its lively mix of shops, restaurants, offices and houses. The Old School House is a few minutes' level walk to Waitrose in the city centre.

The offices comprise the full width front part of this large Edwardian former school, and subsequent auction rooms. In 2000 the whole property was altered and thoroughly refurbished to create high value apartments behind the offices. The site slopes down towards the river (where the apartments have a well-kept garden area).

The Old School House is set back from Walcot Street with a gated cobbled entrance way. This also gives access to the rear of the modern terrace of shops on Walcot Street.

The shops and the St Swithin's Yard offices have their parking spaces off this front yard; the apartments have their spaces down the slope at the back.
