Find out about life in Georgian Bath...
Copies of historic Bath newspapers are held by the Local Studies section of Bath Central Library.
Thanks to the hard work of a team of volunteers, you can now search some of the Georgian newspapers on many subjects, including art, fashion, crime, punishment, pets and politics, to find out about life in Georgian Bath. You can also search by names, and by any other words in the database. The project is run entirely by volunteers under the leadership of the editor, Dr Donald Straughan, also a volunteer.
The database contains information from the Bath Chronicle for the years 1770-1800.
You can now search and order copies on the Georgian Newspaper Project website.
