Tim Mowl: Temple Quarter

Walking tour

Tim Mowl
Wed 18 November 2015,

This riverside walk takes in the old Temple precinct, with the leaning tower of Holy Cross at its heart. While the area around Temple Quay has been regenerated with blocks of dubious architectural quality, the warehouses on the dockside at Redcliff Quay have been sensitively converted to residential use. But what should be done about the shocking brutalism of the post-war light industrial planning zone which surrounds the Blitz-derelict church and Redcliff Street? As properties become vacant, is it time to re-invent the suburb on a more human scale? Tim will be joined in the walk and discussion by Julian Lea-Jones, formerly of Temple Local History Society.

After the walk, join in a discussion about what you have seen over tea and cake.
