A map of resistance to World War 1 in Bedminster, a district of South Bristol. It shows the homes of over 40 Conscientious Objectors and others who took part in resistance to World War 1, as well as places where they worked, met and organised, and other sites of significance.
The map grew out of research for Steps Against War, a history walk created by Otherstory and a group of local people, in collaboration with Remembering the Real World War 1. The project was supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The map and walks are licensed under the following Creative Commons Licence: Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0).
