The city of Bath, located in the Avon Valley, lies at the southern edge of the Cotswolds which are a range of limestone hills which have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hills that the city lies on and are surrounded by have a maximum altitude of just under 800 feet.
The geothermal springs that rise up through the ground in the city, fell as rain in the Mendip Hills. The water percolates through the limestone aquifers at a depth of around 10,000 feet. At it as this depth that geothermal energy heats the water to a temperature of between 64 and 96 degrees centigrade (147 - 205 degreed Fahrenheit). As the water is under pressure it rises to the surface along fissures and fractures in the limestone rock.
The city of Bath has five theatres: Bath Theatre Royal, Ustinov Studio, the egg, the Rondo Theatre and the Mission Theatre. Between them they attract internationally celebrated companies and directors along with an annual season by Sir Peter Hall. Bath Abbey, home to the Klais Organ and the largest concert venue in the city, stages about 20 concerts and 26 organ recitals each year. The art deco Forum, which was originally a cinema, is another concert venue in the city and has a capacity of 1,700.
Located in the county of Lancashire in the north west of England, the city of Preston was historically a major port and industrial centre. Modern day Preston is a major centre of the British defence aerospace industry with BAE Systems, the UK's principal military aircraft design, development and manufacture supplier, having its Military Aircraft headquarters located in nearby Warton. The former Preston Port, known as Riversway or The Docks, has been the site of an expanding commercial and residential complex since 1988. The Marina, just north of the River Ribble which enters into the east of the Irish Sea, has its own chandlery and coffee shop, training courses and boat sales.
