A delightful hamlet of nine picturesque cottages laid out around an open green. The Blaise Hamlet, which is four miles north of the city centre, was built in 1811 to accommodate retired staff from Blaise Castle estate in Henbury. Designed by John Nash each cottage is unique, this style was later widely copied. The hamlet was one of the first examples of a planned community and there are a stone sundial and water pump on the green which commemorates its construction. The cottages are lived in and therefore entry to the public is to the village green only.
Brunel’s ss Great Britain is one of the most important historic ships in the world. When she was launched in 1843 she was called ‘the greatest experiment since the Creation’. By combining size, power and innovative technology, Brunel created a ship that changed history. His vision for the ss Great Britain made her the great-great-grandmother for all modern ships.
