Bedminster — where graves were robbed by body snatchers, and corpses buried in concrete coffins.
Where the old Chinese laundry vanished years ago, and where ‘laundering’ now means money, big money, 13 million, ‘laundered’ through a Bedminster bank.
Where criminals were sentenced to hang in public, their cadavers flayed, their skin tanned and made into……
the answer is in BLOOD AND BUTCHERY IN BEDMINSTER, a new pub/walking tour that includes extraordinary, forgotten places where some amazing things happened.
Grave robbers and body snatchers; concrete coffins and hanging judges. And the missing millions from Britain’s biggest robbery, laundered in Bedminster.
Meet at The Ropewalk, top of East Street near Bedminster Bridge, food/drink available before we start. We’ll visit a few more pubs along the way, finishing near the end of North Street.
Every Tuesday until 18 December with extra around Halloween. Lasts approx 2+ hours.
Cost: £10, advance booking only; buy your own drinks.
