Burgh Walls


Burgh Walls (Hillfort) by thesweetcheat Detail from G. C. Ashmead's 1833 map of Bristol, showing all three riverside forts: Stokeleigh Camp (top left), Clifton Down (right, shown as "Roman Encampment") and the pre-destruction Burgh Walls (bottom left), marked as "Bower Walls Camp". Note the "intended road" cutting through the camp to the not-yet-built suspension bridge.

Apologies for lighting glare, the map is behind glass on the Museum wall.
