Robert Southey and Kingsdown

Bristol Civic Society are putting up a blue plaque on the gate of No 87 on Monday 18 June, as Robert Southey (Poet Laureate) lived here briefly in 1801/2.  There will be an unveiling ceremony at 11.00am.  He was born in Bristol and had Kingsdown connections.  It seems to have been his and his wife’s first house (rented), before moving to live with the Coleridges in the Lakes.
