Martin, the Editor of Bristol24/7, lives in the city centre with his wife, Joanna, and their two children, Mersina and Lois, who both go to Hotwells Primary School.

He was born in Bristol and first worked with Barbara when they were colleagues at the Bristol Evening Post.

“I hope that even people who have lived here their whole life will be able to learn something new from this book,” said Martin.

“There are so many fascinating corners of Bristol that are not widely known about, from the neolithic era up to the present.

“You might have walked by the same place every day without knowing the amazing stories behind it and I hope that this book – with fantastic photos by the brilliant Barbara – will shine a new light on our city.”
