Introductions and General Information

The book 'Church Road BS5 - 100 Years of Shopping' was written and first published in 2014 by Andy Jones and Pauline Luscombe of the Barton Hill History Group. Pubs and churches were omitted as the book is specifically about the shops that have come and gone on the road.

The last few copies of the book have now been sold so we decided to put it online for posterity. If you have already bought a copy, thank you very much for supporting the project.

The website was launched on 1st October 2016, almost a word-for-word copy of the book and keeping a similar look and format.
