The farmhouse at Bridge Farm was built in the 1730s and was one of the last working farms within Bristol. The site consists of the iconic Grade II listed farmhouse by the M32, and a series of 18th and 19th Century barns and outbuildings.

 

The farm complex has been acquired by the Ashley Vale Action Group with the aim of establishing a sustainable community use for the site. The farmhouse and barns will be repaired and re-used as a community living and working hub, and a new sustainable housing project is planned for the adjacent land. DHV Architects have been commissioned to create a design for the whole site in collaboration with LT Studio landscape designers, guided by a sensitive repair philosophy and sustainable permaculture principles. Proposals include a village green with a communal growing space and new site infrastructure. For more information please see https://bridgefarmbristol.co.uk/
