Hillfields Homes for Heroes

Hillfields has the first post-First World War council houses built in Bristol.

The design of these houses was the result of an architectural competition and went on to define the homes we see in many areas of Bristol from Southmead to Knowle.

Local LearningAn official scale drawing of a house in Hillfields, Bristol has been working with schools and residents to uncover and celebrate the history of Hillfields.

This exhibition displays the project’s research findings, creative responses and some of the archival material that inspired them.

Hillfields Homes for Heroes is just one of several citywide projects celebrating the centenary of the Housing Act.

Part of the Festival of Ideas Homes For Heroes 100 project.
