“For the casual visitor the absolute joy of his time spent in Bedminster - a city within a city, locked within the embrace of Bristol’s Georgian splendour - is to be found in the wonderful people that inhabit this vibrant and exciting suburb . . . never in all my travels have I encountered a population more effusive in their welcome, more diligent in their attentiveness, more concerned with the well-being and enjoyment of those that pass through their magnificent city: what is it in their imprisonment that has set these fine people free?”
– Timothy Cocksfoot, Bury Me in BS3: Life and Love in the Southern Suburbs (Avon Packet Press, 1934)
