Earthed Conversations – People
Expert Speakers – Rosie Tomlinson (local history enthusiast and member of the Bedminster Tobacco Women Project), Stephen Wickham (Bristol Civic Soc), Brodie McAllister Landscape architect(general expert and experienced in siting land art installations).
Our guests helped us to understand the history of Ashton Meadows and the surrounding area. In particular we learned how different groups and generations had left their mark on the site, developing, erasing, altering and utilising what those before them had left behind.
Stephen Wickham, a campaigner for Ashton Meadows to be recognised as being culturally significant in terms of its landscaping, took us around the site, providing a window onto the history of the area and how it has come to be what it is today.
