Women's skeleton Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams is to take part in an open-top bus parade through Bath.

She is the first individual gold medal winner at the winter games since Bristol's Robin Cousins, 30 years ago.

The parade takes place on Wednesday, 3 March 2010 and will start from Hayesfield Upper School at 1.30pm, finishing at the Guildhall at 2.15.

The bus parade will give Bath residents a chance to see the Olympian and welcome her home.

Map of the route Amy Williams' bus will take

The route in full will be:

  • Start at Hayesfield Upper School to Brougham Hayes into Pinesway and on to Midland Bridge Road
  • Then Charles Street and Chapel Row to enter Queen Square to Gay Street
  • George Street to Milsom Street then New Bond Street into Northgate
  • Loop around the Guildhall: incorporating Bridge Street, Grand Parade, Orange Grove, High Street and Bridge Street

Orange Grove will be closed to traffic for approximately 15 minutes while the bus passes along it.
