Places in Jane Shaw: Abbey Green

In Threepenny Bit, the Carters and Mallorys befriend the le Rouxs, who have inherited a house full of antiques. Penny suggests that they should open a shop to sell all the old coins, etc. The le Rouxs live and work in Abbey Green in Bath. The giant tree in the middle of the green that is mentioned in today's quote is still standing, but the little square is no longer so drab and has been brightened up. The bin for pig swill was removed in the 1950s.
