The Research Group of Bishopston, Horfield & Ashley Down Local History Society, have published their latest book Bishopston – The Early Years by Denis Wright and John Hyde.  For years Bishopston residents and Horfield residents have been arguing about where Bishopston starts and Horfield stops and all of the arguments are resolved here. The book begins with the boundaries which are fully explained, and ends with details of the shops on Gloucester Road between 1914-1918.
