Bath, Somerset

This project was a challenge and something to get your teeth stuck into!

The client requested that the existing set of steps and terraced beds were removed as they did not like the style and positioning of them. The brief I was given was to construct a set of central steps and uniform terracing out of Bath stone in random sizes.


The walls were constructed with a 100mm concrete block backing wall and then faced using the Bath stone random sizes jointed with a sand and white cement mix . The steps were formed with Bath stone risers and capped off with a pennant paving replica.

The challenging part was calculating the number of steps to connect the two levels and tying in with the walls .The client asked me to link the steps with the existing path by adding paving across the bottom of the lower wall , for this pennant paving was used .
