These character appraisals give an in-depth survey of the features which make the different areas of Bath distinctive. There is a particular emphasis on the heritage features which contribute to the area's conservation area status. Select the areas you are interested from the documents below. 

The character appraisal documents are large PDF files with detailed illustrations, including maps. You may find they are unsuitable for download onto your mobile phone, or while using other applications on your browser.
