Dening's history was originally published in 1943; this edition reproduces the original along with the author's line drawings and has an updated preface by local writer & broadcaster Maurice Fells. Although there is plenty of legendary history of the pubs there is also a substantial amount of observation of physical features supplemented by careful sketches. Maurice Fells update provides an overview of the pubs in the 2nd millenium with an interesting snippet on Bristol's breweries. A fascinating guide to the former (and surviving) historic pubs of Bristol.
