A fitting tribute to a proud community with a rich tradition begins with a feature on the area’s ancient history, with evidence of Roman occupation centuries before the area was commandeered as royal hunting grounds.
Originally produced in 1997, and digitally remastered and enhanced in 2022, the film includes memorable views from the tower of Trinity Church, which enhance a special feature on Kingswood’s religious heritage. There are fond memories of factories (such as Lucas’s and Fantasie), shops (such as Bamford’s Ironmongers) and recollections of the trams.
The photographic archive of Paul and Jill Willmott, authors of several books on Kingswood’s history, capture past times perfectly.
