Housing, Young Mums & Hunting in the Woods.
In this episode, residents talk about how Hillfields became the first council housing estate in Bristol. Jan, Anna and Terry tell us about the Hillfields 100 project, celebrating 100 years of the neighbourhood in 2019. There are also recent stories of raising children in the area with the help of the Hillfields Family & Community Trust. We then meet Steve Hunt from the Bristol Radical History Group who informs us about the history of garden suburbs and King John of England, who had his hunting lodge in nearby Lodge Causeway. Finally, we hear from Former Lord Mayor Graham Robertson, who was born and raised in the area.
