Bath (South West England)

Jump to: navigation, search

Bath, a city in Somerset county in South West England, has some good haunts.

Dumpster diving

  • The Co-Operative supermarkets seem to be good for dumpster diving in general in Bath. Simon regularly dives at the Co-ops in Avon Street (the skips are in a car park behind the supermarket) and the one in Twerton, where the skips are by the football stadium. (Last checked: November 2010)
  • The big Marks & Spencers also have accessible skips. Go right round the back (it's a big store, and the back is quite hard to find) and you'll see the big gates. Go into the one on the right, in the far corner are the skips which are full of random stuff usually. Simon found a three-piece suit in there. (Last checked: November 2010)
