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.”

  • Proposed University Library and Road Closures: Revised Details

    Bristol City Council has recently confirmed that the university’s planning application 20/00433/F includes the closure of Tyndall Avenue to eastbound motor traffic, apart from buses. Woodland Road would be closed to motor cars between the Senate House and the new library. Revised details can be seen on the city council’s website.
    Together with other unrelated proposed changes in the locality to traffic movement, car journeys would be meandering and time-consuming. 
    The closing date for comment is now 26th August 2020.
