Bristol is awesome. Vibrant, creative, full of obscene contrasts and has a tremendous past, the combination of which makes this a place like no other.

Built on a millenia of human strata we are constantly staring at fragments of the past – its people and their lives- usually without consciously giving it a second thought.

So that is what this is. A blog about some of those things you walk past and never notice, or see so often you become blind to it.

I’ve split my blog into two: one area for quick reads and quirky facts and one for longer features. I’m also linked into Facebook (Bristory)  and Twitter (@BristoryHistory), have a look!

I hope you enjoy it and I am always keen to talk about ideas, requests and pretty much anything else you want to throw at me.

Cheers Lovers,
