Wide Wednesday: Cavendish Crescent Bath

With only 11 (relatively plain) houses, Bath's Cavendish Crescent is the poor relation to the other Georgian Crescents in Bath.  It is both the shortest and least embellished of of Bath's seven Georgian crescents.  But that plain facade makes the repetition of the pattern even more obvious, so it seemed a good choice for today's Wide Wednesday challenge with its repeating pattern theme set by Steveng.  

After the storms last night, (heavy rain, thunder and lightening and squally wind) it seemed rather bizzare to be able to walk around in Bath this morning with only a light jacket. Oh yes, and a mask in enclosed spaces.  It seems that Bath (or rather Bath and North East Somerset) is now the coronavirus capital of the UK with 1,723 new cases last week (equivalent to 877.5 per 100,000 people).  Its possibly not unrelated to the South West's PCR testing problems recently when 45,000 positive tests were reported as negative.

Still, its good to know that the Government are confident that it is steady as she goes for the ship of state, no plan B currently required, despite the NHS Confederation sounding very clear alarm bells.  The only thing that gives me hope is their very well established reputation for U turns.
