The Willmott’s extensive knowledge and photographic collection again prove invaluable on this sequel to ‘The Heart of Kingswood’.
The 1st Take team returned to the area a year later, helped again by the Willmotts’ extensive local knowledge and photographic collection.
Local businesses such as Princess Mary Coaches and Civic are explored in depth, as are several chapels and churches. There is also a haunting return to Mangotsfield Railway Station. Kingswood Grammar School’s history is also brought to the screen in a special report by ex-pupil Brian Iles.
The school’s most famous old boy is Sir Bernard Lovell, the world’s first professor of radio astronomy. He reveals some fascinating stories in an interview at the Joddrell bank Observatory he helped to create.
