The Hollybush Inn, Brislington
The Hollybush Inn at Brislington stood at the junction of Bristol Hill and Kenneth Road from 1905 until it was demolished in 2007. The photograph, taken in August 2006, shows one of the contractors locking up the front door after the “boarding-up” was completed. It was by chance, on a day off, that I caught this event whilst having a pint in the Kings Arms across the road!

After the Hollybush was demolished in 2007, an archaeological dig was carried out which revealed some older foundations than the 1905 Pub building. Sadly, soon afterwards, the construction work to build new flats started and the foundations found in the dig were covered with concrete.

It was perhaps a missed opportunity to widen the road, as the Hollybush had been the main bottle-neck through Brislington on the main A4 into and out of Bristol.
