Know your Hillfields

24 March 2012, 11.00 AM - 24 March 2012, 11.00 AM

Hillfields Library, Summerleaze, Bristol, BS16 4HL

Hillfields is an inter-war housing estate that contains some of the earliest council housing in Bristol, initially based on the concept of 'Homes for Heroes'. This was a top-down approach that promoted the relocation of whole communities and dispersal across the city and within each individual estate.  As more data about the estate is gathered, researchers can start to pull out the story of the impact of this unprecedented period of pre-World War II house building.  So find out more and contribute your own memories of Hillfields.

This event is organised in conjunction with Bristol City Council and the Greater Fishponds Neighbourhood Partnership and is part of the Know your Bristol series of events on local community heritage.
