North Bristol Seamills, Stoke Bishop, Sneyd Park & Henleaze Through Time Summary


North Bristol Seamills, Stoke Bishop, Sneyd Park & Henleaze Through Time by Anthony Beeson

'Stoke Bishop has less community of interest with Bristol than London has with Brighton,' stated Francis Tagart from his luxurious Old Sneed Park mansion in January 1885. For decades it rankled with Bristolians that those who made their fortunes within Bristol and enjoyed its benefits contributed nothing to its rates as they resided beyond the city boundaries, in the countryside between Sneyd Park and Westbury. But plans were afoot to capture these wealthy areas. This volume is arranged as a series of four textual peregrinations through areas that were once within the Westbury and Henbury parishes. It includes Sea Mills, Stoke Bishop, Sneyd Park, Westbury Park and Henleaze. Walks commence from Shirehampton Park, the Downs, Wood End and Coldharbour Road. The rare illustrations come from the author's own collection, those of the Bristol Reference Library and from private albums.
