Samuel Loxton

In the early 1900s, numerous illustrations appeared in the Bristol newspapers by artist Samuel Loxton, who portrayed hundreds of views of Bristol and surrounding areas.

The good news is we have permission from Bristol City Council to publish Loxton's drawings of Winterbourne, and we are very grateful for their kind permission to publish on the Winterbourne website.

His drawing of » St.Michael's Church appears on the cover of the
» 1988 Church Guide.
