The History of Widcombe

During the Industrial Revolution the district of Lyncombe and Widcombe was noted for the manufacture of woollen cloth, with 565 men employed in the industry in 1831. The area closest to the river was considered the manufacturing part of Bath, whereas the valley of Lyncombe Vale to the south remained a more secluded area of natural beauty.

In 1835 the Municipal Corporations Act extended the boundary of the city of Bath to include the entire parish of Lyncombe and Widcombe. Twenty years later, and following an increase in the population of the area, Widcombe and Lyncombe were split into two parishes.
