You will find Pulteney Bridge in the City of Bath, over the River Avon. This is not the same River Avon as you find in the Cotswolds (Shakespeare country), or for that matter other Avon rivers in England, Scotland and Wales. The word Avon is a cognate of the Welsh word Afon which means "river". So I guess the naming of this river is somewhat redundant. The bridge, with that beautiful golden stone found in much of Bath, was built in 1779 and has shops on both sides with the street running down the middle. The windows of the shops on the left side of the bridge facing us, house a tea-room that makes great tea and even more amazing scones with jam and clotted cream.
