We are a group of volunteers formed from local people, users of the parkland, and anyone interested in the conservation of the Registered Historic Landscape and house. Our intentions are to lobby the City Council to provide a new management plan for the estate, to monitor the Grade I Listed House and garden buildings, and to source funding to develop the grounds into a first-class green space for everyone to enjoy.
Kings Weston House is a nationally important building designed by Sir John Vanbrugh, one of this country’s greatest architects, but there are more than a dozen other important buildings within the boundary of the modern park. Kings Weston is largely overlooked by many people, even in Bristol. The park, first laid out in the 17th Century, is now public parkland and is full of three hundred years of history but has for too long been forgotten. Following decades of neglect it has been left overgrown with many of its historic features already lost.
KWAG takes practical action to secure the future of this unique place and see it better understood. We’re keen to share our enthusiasm with as many people as possible and run regular tours around the park, schools events, lectures and other events to bring it to a wide new audience. Get in touch with us if you are interested in joining in with any of these events.
