St Annes Stories – Podcast Episode

22 November [29 min]


In this podcast we explore the stories, memories and myths of St Anne’s, a hidden corner of Bristol with an intriguing history.

You can listen to conversations and contributions from local residents, aged under 10 to over 90, where they speak about the histories of St Anne’s House and the surrounding area. The episode also shares restored archive recordings from Bristol M-Shed’s industrial and maritime history collection. These original tapes contain interviews with those who worked around Bristol between 86 and 88 as part of the ‘Bristol at Work Project’.
