An audio walk through Staple Hill, with stories in Page Park, Broad Street and the much loved High Street.
Recommended route: Start at The Bean Tree Cafe in Page Park; leave the park, cross road and walk down south side of Broad Street; after 'Men's suits & Clarks Pies' cross the road and walk back up towards park, finishing in Fountain Square. Walk can also be done the other way round...or any way you fancy!
Please take care when doing this walk! We recommend pausing stories to cross roads!
Recorded and produced by Richard Lobb. Additional production, research and support by Melody Beard and Freya Smith.
Funded by South Gloucester Council, Thrive Grant.
