Bristol’s Australian Pioneer: Robert Bush and the Bishop’s Knoll First World War Hospital

An exhibition telling the extraordinary story of Clifton’s Robert Bush, who played cricket alongside W G Grace and later helped establish the Western Australia Cricket Association.

Having grown a successful sheep rearing business in Australia, Bush returned to Bristol in 1905 and bought Bishop’s Knoll House.

He became Sheriff of Bristol in 1912 and at the outbreak of the First World War, converted his home into a 100-bed hospital for wounded Australian soldiers.
