#18 Sea Mills 100 with Mary Milton

We talk with Mary Milton, an active member of the Sea Mills community, about Sea Mills 100: the centenary project that explores and celebrates this garden suburb’s social history.
The project has culminated in a micro museum, a number of outdoor events, a podcast, and most recently, a book, entitled “How Lucky I Was: A book of Sea Mills memories.”
It’s a fascinating journey into a place with a remarkable history. Built originally as a pragmatic but idealist council housing estate, for veterans of World War One, Sea Mills can tell us a lot about what housing can mean.
We hear about what Mary learned, and what surprised her, as she developed Sea Mills 100.
