Bristol Central Library




A gently paced walk from Bristol Central Library. We will be following the route of our new Community Map. The walk will be led by local historian John Parke.   We are working with local traders and businesses to produce a community map covering the area of this walk. A neighbourhood partnership wellbeing grant funded our project, that we have been working on for over a year. The final map of this first section of the Jacobs Wells Community should be ready in time for this walk.

The walk starts at Bristol Central Library , College Green continues along Deanery Road and St Georges Road and ends at Jacobs Wells Baths. This is an area full of historical interest much of which is unknown but has been extensively researched by John Parke. We end next to the site of the first purpose built theatre in Bristol. City of Bristol College students have been involved in designing the map and invited local businesses to a discussion meeting in March.
