The Henbury Conservation Society exists to make sure that the many attractive parts of the Henbury Conservation Area which includes many 17th & 18th century buildings and a large area of green space are maintained and improved . The Society works to protect and enhance the historical features of the area and to enhance and preserve it’s natural environment. It is not anti any developments, just those which would remove or radically change existing features. Key components of it’s activities when it has an active committee are meetings and events which introduce all generations to the fascinating history of Henbury and surroundings.
Our conservation area was the first one in Bristol having been defined as such by the Traffic & Planning Committee of Bristol City Council in late 1969.
