An urban walk that explores the political reverberations of the first cholera outbreak in Bristol in 1832. The 1830s was a time of radical political and social division in Britain. At this moment a terrible disease arrived in the country – the Cholera Morbus. It seemed to afflict old and young alike, doctors were baffled by its cause, and for some of its victims it led to a terrible end. The walk examines the social, economic, cultural and political impacts of the epidemic in the South West.

The walk will begin at the front entrance to M Shed.

It is an easy, pavement-based walk, and will last a little over an hour.
