In pictures: Pigs in Bath

Pig by Bath Abbey

Oink! This brightly coloured chap is one of 100 pigs that are springing up all over the city of Bath.


It's all a big display to make people aware of the myth of how Bath was founded. This bubbly fellow is outside the city's new spa.


An ancient king, Bladud, was apparently walking his pigs when they found the city's hot springs. But what's this piggy wearing?


He's being decorated in sausages by kids at St Julian's Primary School in Wellow.

Golden pig

The pigs are all over the city. This one's made his way on top of a shop!

Hairy pig

While this porker seems to need a haircut.
