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.”

  • New Year Resolutions

    The Kingsdown Conservation Group would like to wish all its members and the Kingsdown community all the best for the New Year and 2020.

    2019 has been a turbulent year and the coming year might well be an equally challenging one. To help with knowing what is going on in and around Kingsdown and deciding what we can be doing, there is now a calendar of events on the website.

    Many of these events are talks, films showings and discussion evenings centred on what we as individuals and as a community can do to mitigate the effects of a climate crisis and make our lifestyles more sustainable.

    Some of these will be held on Monday evenings at the Kingsdown Vaults and we hope to to have a range of topics such as energy consumption; our biodiversity and wildlife crisis or new transport solutions.
