The Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Public House in Bristol

Fisher, Fiona and Preston, Rebecca (2015) The Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Public House in Bristol. (Project Report) Online : Historic England. 521 p.


Nationally many pubs are closing with the threat of loss of historic buildings and interiors. This study was commissioned to help increase knowledge and appreciation of the urban and suburban public house in Bristol and highlight the current threat to the city's pubs. The report looks at architectural development, building plan forms, external and internal features of the pubs and the legislative or planning policy and social history trends that shaped them. It is well illustrated with modern and archive photographs and building plans. An appendix gives further information in gazetteer form on thirty-seven important surviving examples of Bristol's nineteenth-and twentieth-century pubs.
