About Kingsdown


The Kingsdown Conservation Group tries to protect, enhance and stimulate public interest in the Kingsdown area of Bristol. There are over 204 listed buildings in the area and there were a lot more, but in the 1960s, as the Civic Society put it, “The destruction of Bristol’s most important Georgian suburb was perhaps the worst of all the crimes committed in Bristol in the name of progress since the war.”

  • Marlborough Hill Temporary Closure

    A Message from University Hospitals Bristol Estates Projects.

    “Regarding the combined heat and power (CHP) with district heating facility project, I can confirm that the new CHP engine and first phase of the district heating facility is substantially complete, with the Trust now receiving beneficial use of these systems. The Trust is now looking ahead to a second phase of this project, seeking to extend the new district heating network to the remaining Trust buildings. This will both enhance the resilience of the Trust’s critical infrastructure and enable us to take a further step towards our ambitious carbon reduction target. 

    In preparation for this, a road closure will be required on Marlborough Hill from Wednesday 13 to Friday 29 January 2021 to enable the Trust to conduct trial-holes in this area. The road closure has been approved by Bristol City Council via the Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) process. 
    We are grateful for the cooperation of the local community”
