The History of Bishopsworth, Withywood and Hartcliffe

This 2hr presentation is an enlightening and enjoyable account of the history of the old parish of Bishopsworth, an area which now includes the post-war housing developments of Withywood and Hartcliffe.

Until the early 1960s, when it was replaced by the Swimming Pool, the Village Triangle stood proud in the heart of the community. It included a Norman Chapel, the first village Post Office and some quaint cottages.

Special features include a visit to the beautifully restored 18th century Manor House, St Peter’s Church, the Grange (later the Mendip Gate pub) and a look at the area’s farming heritage.

Modern highlights include: Bishopsworth at War, memories of the Hartcliffe estate in the 1950s, some stunning views from Dundry and the local Fire Brigade that never saw action!

Narrated by Anton Bantock of the Malago Society, the story is enhanced by some fascinating old photographs, and there are also interviews with a host of local characters for whom this corner of South West Bristol is their favourite part of the city.
