1793 was a year of financial crisis, civic corruption, and public protest. After 25 years the hated toll to cross Bristol Bridge was due to cease. But was it?
Join writer and historian Mike Manson for a ‘Rebel Walk’ through a darker moment in Bristol’s history outlining the dreadful sequence of events that led to one of the worst civilian massacres of eighteenth century Britain.
Mike Manson is the author of Riot! The Bristol Bridge Massacre of 1793 (Tangent Books).
