Visit led by David Martyn, Senior Conservation Architect, Bristol City Council

This walking tour of the Redcliffe area starts at 2pm and will cover its history and architecture.

Is it time to reevaluate our relationship with an area of the city centre that’s often overlooked? The walk will focus on the development of Redcliffe in the twentieth century and how planners sought to respond to the historic context. We will pass through some of the area’s historic parts, before taking in some of the Redcliffe estate and, hopefully, reappraising its architectural and social contribution to the city.

Meeting point St Mary Redcliffe Church – at the steps below the North Porch.

There will be a small charge and joining details will be communicated to members.

Walk duration approx 2 – 21/2 hours. Booking essential – an ebulletin notice will follow later with booking instructions.
