Come with us on a journey through time and space in Bedminster, Victoria Park and Windmill Hill… This two hour history walk uncovers the radical political groups and individuals active in Bedminster in the pre-WWI and post-war periods, the strikes and trade union actions of the growing labour movement and how these networks of activists combined to resist the war. We also look at the changing nature of the area and the development of Victoria Park.

This walk runs from Bedminster Parade up to Victoria Park and Windmill Hill, so it does include a hill or two. Please bring wet weather gear if necessary.
