Wallace & Gromit (W&G) were created by Nick Park and have grown in popularity over 25 years. So much so that there is simply too much going on in the W&G world for Nick to keep on top of everything. That’s where I come in.
At Bristol Archives we care for the city’s archives – over ten miles of shelving containing documents dating back as far as the 12th century – by carefully managing the storage conditions in our strongrooms.
Our staff and invited guests introduce their favourite documents from the Bristol Archives collections. For this edition, Malcolm Boyns, Archivist has selected a petition to alter the place for public executions of criminals, 1773.
