Situated high up on a hill overlooking the Severn Estuary and Avonmouth, the 28 acres of wooded parkland surrounding Kings Weston House are popular with local walkers.
Although only small by stately home standards Kings Weston House has some unique features and has been described as one of Sir John Vanbrugh's finest compact houses.
The park is now owned by Bristol City Council and the National Trust. The Kings Weston Action Group (KWAG) actively champions the historic estate and works to conserve it.
Listen to the story of the early years of this little known historical gem.
