newsThis section of our web site will be carrying occasional news report from the date of launch onwards (as well as aiming to keep you updated by signposting you to what the experts and specialists in this field are saying)...

.....but what about what went before this?

The team that got together to form Clean Air Bishopston have a long history of coverage of air pollution and clean air. A visit to the web sites of some of our team members including Bishopston Society, Sustainable Bishopton and Bristol Walking Alliance will reveal more about their previous involvement and news.

For example you may find it useful to review the following selection of recent coverage by Bishopston Society, our host organisation - they are all relevant to clean air in Bishopston from now on and worth referring back to:-

In addition, The Bishopston Society recently launched its occasional papers series, in which selected pieces of the organisation's work considerd to exhibit lasting value are re-published in PDF-format longer papers. Early items released as part of this series include:-

  • Paper #1: "Air Quality in Bristol and Bishopston – updates from three expert perspectives" by Jim Longhurst, Ben Williams, Gavin Spittlehouse and Tom Brook - compilation of all of these authors' articles submitted in advance of their 04/04/17 talks (see above);
  • Paper #2: "What can we do to clean up our air? Travel behaviour and sustainable transport, self-help and community-based strategies for clean air, how international research can inform local actions." by Caroline Bartle - in-depth transcript and expansion of the author's talk given on 03/10/17 (see above)

.....both of which can be read or downloaded from

letswalkFinally, another recent Bishopston Society innovation has seen the online publication of the popular and well-received Bishopston Walking maps. To date, seven well-researched and professionally-produced maps have been created to encourage local walking, and these can be viewed at or downloaded from its Bishopston Walking maps web page.

See also our "Walk for health and cleaner air in Bishopston" section for more on walking.
