About this blog

The London Road Gateway Project Bath aims to improve the public realm of the stretch of London Road, between Cleveland Place junction, and Morrisons Supermarket.

Bath based artist Jane Veveris Callan has been commissioned by Bath and North East Somerset Council to create decorative designs to go onto the tree planters, and grilles that will form part of the improvements.

Jane collaborated with Alan Summers and Karen Hoy of Call of the Page, formerly known as 'With Words', to work with the community, gathering local history and stories as words, with haiku and renga poems, which have informed her resulting designs.

This blog has been created to share some of the creative process.

Tree Planting

The tree planting has begun! 
Greening up the area is an important part of the regeneration scheme and the reason for the existence of the planters and grilles which have been decorated with the laser cut designs.

The small leafed Lime Trees are now being planted in the remodelled Central reservation. They are lovely mature specimens that have a beautiful and elegant conical shape.

The design on the trees grilles which will go around the bases has a simple message which speaks for  the residents and the trees!
