Westbury-on-Trym (sometime Westbury-super-Trym) was already old when its upstart neighbour Bristol was founded in the tenth century. With a famous collegiate church, Westbury played only a minor role in the nation's history. Later renowned for its wealthy households and a remarkably low poor rate, the medieval parish of Westbury encompassed fourteen modern parishes. The areas covered include Westbury village, Canford and Coombe Lanes, Coombe Dingle and Bowden's Fields, Henbury and Blaise, King's Weston, Lawrence Weston, Shirehampton and Avonmouth. The rare illustrations come from the author's own collection, private albums and the Bristol Reference Library, providing a wonderful historical record of the area.
