Rate this:
Bristol's history is packed with nooks and crannies, peculiar customs, and curious characters. This book explains why the vicar in one church goes on an annual trek to peer down a manhole; why captains of industry sing an 18-verse song in memory of Queen Elizabeth I; and how the Flower of Bristol got its name. You will meet some unusual contraptions, like the bed with in-built exercise equipment, or the thrashing machine for naughty boys. You will also discover why a public clock still runs to Bristol time. This compendium of the weird and wonderful will surprise even those Bristolians who thought they really knew their city.
