It is a major centre of employment, retail, culture and higher education, has many historic areas, and has a history of maritime industry. The city has a population of 400,000, with a metropolitan area of 550,000, and lies at the centre of the former County of Avon, which includes many dormitory towns, and has a population of one million. Additionally, it has the seventh highest population density of any English district.

Memories of 1947 - A Winters Hell
Memories of 1947 - A Winters Hell
severe winters Since daily meteorological records began in Britain in the 17th century, there have been a number of severe winters. The coldest of all was probably 1684, when the diarist John Evelyn took a coach to Lambeth along the frozen River Thames. There was an exceptionally cold and protracted winter in 1739/40 when, between November 1739 and May 1740, snow fell on 39 days in the London area. January in both 1795 and 1814 were colder than January 1740, and the month of February in 1855, 1895 and 1947 were colder than February 1740. England and Wales would have to wait 223 years for a winter as cold as 1740: 1963. But what was so remarkable about the 1739/40, however, is that the mean temperatures of both January and February were below 0-C in the Midlands and southern England. The only other known instance of two successive months with mean temperatures below freezing took place in December 1878 and January 1879. Extreme weather hit the West Country Hard IN THE bitter winter of 1947 snow fell somewhere throughout the whole country every day from the end of January to the middle of March. But, here in Bristol, we also had to cope with floods and winds of more than 70 miles an hour. It was on January 24 that people woke up to the start of what was to become known as 'The Big Freeze'. At the city's airport - then situated at Whitchurch - the mercury in the thermometer plunged to -5.6-C (22-F) with about 5.6-C (10-F) of frost. The next day the Post reported that ice, snow and fog had combined to dislocate the city's traffic flow. A 10 per cent reduction in electricity voltage across the city was ordered but some districts were completely disconnected from all supplies. While people living in Falcondale Road, Westbury-on-Trym, were groping around in their homes and trying to cook breakfast with improvised heating, their neighbours in Downs Cote Drive still had their lights burning. Two cinemas and a theatre in Old Market were all without lights for an hour on February 3 - the filmgoers were told they could sit it out or return another day. At the King's Cinema the power cut came just at the climax of the second feature, a dramatic moment centring on the result of the heavyweight championship of the world. The cast of Dick Whittington at the Empire weren 't going to let a mere blackout stop their show - they continued with the aid of candles and night lights. At the end of January we were hit by 'The Great Bizzard'. There was a big fall of snow-19cm (7.5 inches) at Long Ashton - and in Bristol 38 ploughs and scrapers were used to clear the streets with the help of 200 lorries and about 1,000 men. Many offices reported that staff were working in overcoats, gloves and scarves - some even had blankets wrapped around them. Factory workers were often sent home as their machines refused to work on the reduced voltage. One tragic story belongs to a Great Western Railway worker, a Mr Henry Holley, who at 56 was walking into work from the village of Bitton. After three miles in atrocious conditions he collapsed and died. February 24 was the coldest night for 18 years; the thermometer at Bristol's University's research station at Long Ashton dropped to -12.8-C (9-F). As the severe frost continued it led to the death of a 70-year-old Bedminster man. His sister was found unconscious on the settee. On March 3, weather conditions began to improve and thousands of workers went back to their benches for the first time in three weeks. Meanwhile, farmers were using tractors and \ off-road vehicles to get milk to the Cross Hands Hotel at Old Sodbury where it was collected by lorry. Then, after the snow and ice, came the thaw and the rain. After the heaviest downpour Bristol had seen for months fell on March 11 the river Frome rose 104cm (3ft Sin) in just 24 hours. Allotments adjoining Bell Hill, Stapleton, were under several feet of water. At Keynsham, the river Avon was reported to be half a mile wide and 4.6m (15 feet) above normal. By the middle of March there was a sudden change in the weather. A gust of wind was recorded at 77mph at Long Ashton. At Lawrence Hill the side of a house collapsed. Fifteen years later history was to repeat itself. As Bristolians were putting out the cat on Boxing Day night 1962, snow started falling. But this wasn't the Christmas card variety but a blizzard - the first of many to hit the city over the next two months. In that time there were nearly 40 snowfalls creating drifts up to 5.5m (18 feet) deep. Conditions were so bad that the Bristol Post advised its readers to 'Slip home - then stay there'. It was good advice - three days later there were 4ft drifts across some parts of the city. On the last day of the year the paper's front page screamed, 'Misery Monday' -we were in the icy grip of the worst blizzards since 1947. The litany of chaos, damage and disruption makes depressive reading. Scores of villages around Bristol were cut off and minor roads
Filton air expansion?
Filton air expansion?
Wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill was against the expansion of Filton as an airfield, secret papers have revealed. Previously unseen documents from meetings of the war cabinet in 1945, and just released on January 1, show that Churchill, did not favour Filton as the base for the development of new civil jets. Minutes taken from the June 11 meeting show that he believed Filton workers did not 'believe' in a project to build a long-distance passenger aircraft. But he was persuaded by future Prime Minister Harold Macmillan to expand Filton, and Bristol Aeroplane Company was given the task of building the superjet of the future. It led to the firm's biggest post-war white elephant, the Brabazon, a 'flying hotel' with old-fashioned propellers which never came close to rivalling US developments in jet travel. The cabinet papers reveal that Churchill took issue with the costs of buying 700 acres of land necessary to extend the runway. The selection of Filton as the base for the Brabazon meant flattening the nearby village of Charlton so the runway could be extended from 1,500 yards to 2,750 yards. Despite promises that the village would be rebuilt, most of the families ended up living on the newly-built council estate at Patchway. Churchill also opposed the construction of a large assembly shed with a view to using the airfield as Bristol's civil airport. Documents show he wanted to postpone the decision, but at a later cabinet meeting on June 20, 1945, was talked into it. Churchill is reported as giving in and authorising the minister of aircraft production to arrange for work to be started on the construction of the assembly shed at Filton for the Brabazon civil aircraft, under the proviso that the expenditure would not exceed ?50,000. In total the assembly hall to build the Brabazon at Filton cost ?3.5 million.
