Bedminster: The Pride of South Bristol

Eminent local historian Anton Bantock is the ideal narrator of a film based on Bristol’s famous southern suburb.

The ancient origins of Bedminster, which is older than Bristol itself, are explained in depth. There is a special feature on St John’s Church, which no longer exists, but which was at one time the mother church to St Mary Redcliffe.

Bedminster’s industrial tradition is celebrated with segments on W.D. & H.O. Wills, Robinson’s and coal mining.

Collards, the family butchers, and E.N. Miles, the drapery emporium, come to life again with the aid of lovely old photographs.

The history of Bedminster’s less fortunate souls is also recognised with reports on the Union Workhouse and the Soup Kitchen at William Street.

You will also discover a Bedminster publican who kept a wild animal to promote his business, amongst an array of priceless tales.
