History of Eastwood Farm and the area
The intention of this page is to give a history of Eastwood Farm, and perhaps too of Broomhill. It will talk about the farm as a farm, it’s purchase by Bristol City Council, and use as a landfill site. It will no doubt mention that it is because rubbish was dumped here that it remains undeveloped – that we have all that rubbish to thank for having such a wonderful open space! (Rubbish dumps are unstable, and the composting rubbish gives off methane, so that it is dangerous to build over a landfill).
