Wickham Glen

Snuff Mills Action Group also has an interest in Wickham Glen. Nestling to the southwest of Blackberry Hill it links the Snuff Mills area to Eastville Park and is another one of Bristol's historic gems. A plaque half way down at Wickham Court commemorates the holding of a council of war between Oliver Cromwell and General Fairfax in 1645 before their attack on Bristol. Further down is a medieval pack horse bridge, reputedly Bristol's oldest. Does anyone have any information on this area?
