Eight fascinating pictures of Bristol estates during the 1960s and 1970s

Did you grow up on any of the estates we have selected?

You only have to look at the number of cranes on the skyline to see that new high-rise buildings seem to be appearing in Bristol all the time.

Many of the estates Bristolians grew up on are unrecognisable compared to when they were in their younger years.

Bristol World has pulled together eight images documenting estates across Bristol either at the time of their completion or shortly after.

The areas included cover Bedminster, Brislington, Easton, Henbury, Hartcliffe, Fishponds, Two Mile Hill and Barton Hill.

The pictures were supplied by the Housing Department function on Bristol City Council’s Know Your Place site.
