Event Details

Gloucester’s position at the lowest bridging point on the Severn has contributed enormously to its trading prosperity throughout the city’s long history. Sometimes benign, often treacherous, the shape-shifting river has been a difficult neighbour, and overcoming the frontier it presents has led to a succession of bridges and causeways. John Chandler, contributing editor to Gloucestershire’s Victoria County History, will unravel the complexities from Roman times to modern ring roads, and explain why its river crossings have always mattered to Gloucester’s fortunes.
