Bishopston Horfield and Ashley Down Local History

Bishopston Horfield and Ashley Down Local History

This friendly local history group provides a programme of lectures and events to promote an interest and understanding of all aspects of local and social history in the immediate area and Bristol as a whole.

They undertake and encourage research into all aspects of the area and encourage knowledge, appreciation and preservation of its history. The society always welcomes any historical information or material for copying which could be stored in the archives. This local research group has had a number of books published.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month (except July, August and December) at 7.30pm at the Friends’ Meeting House, 300 Gloucester Road, Bishopston. For anybody looking for an evening out locally where you can make new friends, and enjoy the talks and slide shows given, feel free to attend and see if it would appeal to you. Visitors are charged £2 per visit with a free cup of tea or coffee, and a biscuit. Subscriptions are £10 a year.

For information on their forthcoming meetings visit the ‘What’s On’ section of this website.
