Bath Blitz maps

On the night of 25th and 26th April 1942, the German airforce carried out major air raids on Bath. Over 400 people were killed, and a huge amount of damage caused to buildings.

The Bomb Damage maps show the effects of this bombing on the City of Bath. Nine of the maps are coloured to show the severity of the damage to buildings, and eight show the exact location of each of the high explosive bombs which fell on the city. There is also a City wide map showing the locations in which bombs fell.

All eighteen maps are available on one CD for £8 or you can receive the maps by online transfer.

Please add £1.50 for postage and packing to UK addresses, or £3 to overseas addresses.
