Brislington Remembered

This documentary on Brislington continues the story of the area’s rich and fascinating past. As with ‘Yesterday’s Brislington’, it is illustrated superbly by the vast photographic archive of Brislington historian Jonathan Rowe.

It begins with recollections of notable Brislington people, Houses and Farms. The two principal landowning families, the Clayfield-Irelands and the Cooke-Hurles, are remembered and there is a special feature on a Brislington diary from the 1860s.

Local industry highlights include the memories of former employees of the Co-op Butter Factory in Whitby Road, and of Smiths Crisps Factory on Bath Road.

The ‘Brislington at War’ feature is a poignant record of how the area was affected by both World Wars, including eye-witness accounts of the Blitz and memories of the American soldiers preparing for D-Day.

On a lighter note, some wonderful archive cine film recalls Brislington during the severe winter of 1963. There is also a tribute to local sporting traditions, with a look back at Brislington Cricket and Football Clubs, and a colourful section on Amateur Dramatics in the area.

Relax and enjoy 100 minutes of Brislington nostalgia!
