Museum opening and heritage trail 8 & 9th June 2019

Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th are key dates in the Sea Mills 100 Calendar. Our mini-museum on the Square will open on Saturday and remain for at least a year.

Our heritage trail, devised by local residents will be open over the weekend. Visitors will be able to tour Sea Mills and find out who lived in some of the houses when they were first built.

It’s almost here. June 2019 will see in the 100th anniversary of the Sea Mills estate and we will be celebrating with a series of events over the weekend of the 8th and 9th June.

Sea Mills Heritage Trail 8th – 9th June 2019
Many of the public areas and buildings around Sea Mills will be open. A number of private houses will have information outside them in the street so that you can find out about the people that used to live there up to 100 years ago.

You can download a Sea Mills 100 trail map or pick up a copy from Sea Mills Library or the Cafe on the Square during the weekend.

    1. Hi Angela,
      Thanks so much for the information, it’s wonderful to hear from you. There is no written history at the moment but we are working on something in the form of a booklet which will be published next year. Would you like to contribute? Can you email me at info@seamills100.co.uk
      Mary
