Bath Streets

The City Clerk's office maintains a record of Bath's accepted streets called the Street Book. A digital copy of the Street Book can be found in the following PDF files. Although the Street Book does sort streets by the first letter of the original street name, the information under each letter in the Street Book is usually sorted in roughly chronological, not alphabetical, order. It is important to read the entire section when researching a street, because later modifications to a street may appear elsewhere in the document. Note also that some scans may be difficult to read; please visit the clerk's office to review the Street Book in person if needed.
