About Us

The Henleaze Book aims to:

  1. Research and find out more local, social and family history with voluntary help from past and present residents and anyone who is interested in the Henleaze area of Bristol and its environs.
  2. Respond to the needs of people to build on/or improve facilities in its local community

This group started with four members in the late 1980s – Veronica Bowerman, Sylvia Kelly, Ron Lyne and Elizabeth Herring. Following the information researched by the group about the area and also from the facts provided by past and present residents the first dedicated publication solely about the history of Henleaze was published in 1991. A lot of interest was therefore generated and the first edition of the book sold out within a couple of weeks.

BELOW IS THE FIRST REVIEW:

Reviewed by local resident, Libby Bloor: HENLEAZE UNCOVERED. Anyone who lives, has lived, or has any association with Henleaze will find Veronica Bowerman's social archaeology provides fascinating insights into this part of North Bristol. As a grandma and ex teacher I have loved being able to show children the changing face of the neighbourhoods they live in and this book, alongside Veronica Bowerman's other publications, provides a wealth of material to inspire us all.
