Andy Buchan from the Bishopston, Horfield and Ashley Down Local History Society kindly stood in at short notice when our visit to Arno’s Vale Cemetery was cancelled. It was a lovely summer’s evening and he took us first to Horfield Parish Church to give us a very informative talk about the development of the building over the years. We had a quick tour around the graveyard followed by a walk to Horfield Common and a short insight into the history of the Common and surrounding area.
