Combe Down (the original spelling - "hill of the valley" in Old English) has been part of Bath's history since the Roman occupation. Local Celtic tribes had a nearby settlement on Bathampton Down but the Romans first used Combe Down for stone quarrying and sheep farming (Cunliffe's History of Bath notes a Roman lead seal from a wool bale found in Combe Down), especially since the area was convenient for the crossroads of two of Britaina's historical linear landmarks, the Wansdyke and the Roman Fosse Way, at Odd Down. It was Ralph Allen who put Combe Down firmly on the map of Bath by purchasing 100 acres of land on the hill for quarrying then, in 1731, commissioning Bristol engineer John Pudmore to build a revolutionary mechanical railway down Prior Park Road/Ralph Allens Drive to the Avon wharf at Dolemeads (Widcombe). Ralph Allen's own house at Prior Park was built on land acquired by Allen, in 1728, which formerly belonged to the Prior of Bath. The house, designed by John Wood, was ready for occupation by 1741 ( a year before Ralph Allen became Mayor of Bath) and the landscaped gardens (designed by the poet Alexander Pope and the eminent landscape gardener Capability Brown) covered 28 acres of Widcombe hillside.
