Bathing with the druids


Architect John Wood the Younger, who was responsible for many of the most famous buildings in the English city of Bath, was obsessed with the occult – and druidism in particular. This is evident in the design of the city’s most famous features, the Royal Crescent and the nearby Circus (pictured below), which clearly represent the sun and the moon – especially when viewed from above. The circumference of the Circus also matches – almost exactly – that of the inner circle of rocks at Stonehenge, the most famous druid monument of them all. Regardless of any hidden meanings, however, the Royal Crescent and the Circus represent probably the finest examples of Georgian architecture in the whole of the UK.
