This is how St Philips in Bristol used to look decades ago

Divided by the Feeder Canal, St Philips Marsh and its neighbour St Philips are set for rapid change in the coming years. Once home to factories and worker houses, the area near Temple Meads is an established hub of Bristol industry.

From the bustling fruit market to the science and innovation centre Science Creates, there are still plenty of businesses thriving on the former marsh. It’s also in line for major redevelopment as part of the Temple Quarter scheme including the University of Bristol’s new campus and the plan for Temple Island.
