Anyone remember Inns of Court, public house? (now demolished)

Inns Court and Filwood farms have medieval origins. The surviving parts of Inns Court, originally Inyn’s Court, are now part of the former Holy Cross Inns Court Vicarage and the staircase turret is now a Grade II* listed building.

The area called Knowle West today was predominately rural; the area consisted largely of agricultural and allotment land interrupted by a handful of small farmhouses (Filwood Farm, Inns court cottage, Hengrove House etc.), and the Nover’s Hill Isolation Hospital. The small settlements in the area existed at least from the medieval period and have undergone only gradual change.

Inns court, built in the 1960s, departed from the garden city layout. It was developed on Radburn principles, named after an American Town designed by clarence Stein and Henry Wright in 1929. In principle, Radburn estates were built with the intention to create neighourhoods that were economically viable communities, accommodating modern lifestyles whilst providing amenities of open space and community services. common features were grouped houses arranged around a cul-de sac street layout thus the street layout broke away from the conventional street grid pattern.

This was replaced by short cul-de-sacs accessed off a circuitous feeder road which in our context is Inns court Drive. Pedestrians were widely segregated from vehicular traffic.

APART from Bedminster, which would appear to date back to Saxon times, not much is known about the early history of south Bristol.

But 30 years ago archaeologists discovered evidence of a Roman settlement – ditches, foundations and a cobbled area – beneath Filwood playing fields. Other finds, from the same area, were discovered during building work in 1973.

Much further back in time, in 1869 in fact, an urn stuffed with "thousands of coins" was unearthed near a small stream on Filwood Farm, near Hengrove Way.

Other buildings from the Roman period had been found at Brislington (a villa) Bedminster Down (coffin and a villa) Gatcombe at Long Ashton (possible weapons manufacture and storage) and at Lyons Court Farm, Whitchurch (coffins, coins and coin moulds).

Another Roman site, possibly a farmstead, was discovered fairly recently in West Street, Bedminster.

In 1997 yet another Roman settlement was found in Knowle West, near to a medieval manor house known as Inns Court. Here, buried outside the foundations of one of the buildings, was the grave of a young female, surrounded by coffin nails.

All the evidence would seem to suggest a small village made up of separate farm buildings. The same excavation also revealed some 14th and 15th-century sections of Inns Court, which, in its time, had been surrounded by over 100 acres of farmland. This building takes its name from Sir John Inyn, Lord Chief Justice of the King’s Bench, whose substantial family home this was and who died here, leaving behind his wife, Alice, daughter, Elizabeth and a son, in 1440.

Sir John, who held high public office under both King Henry V and King Henry IV, was the Recorder of Bristol.

One of his many duties – and one which no doubt took him away from home for long periods – was King’s Assessor to the Duchy of Cornwall.

An important man in his time, you can see his brass memorial (he is in his judge’s robes) in the Lady Chapel of St Mary Redcliffe Church.

The manor house continued to be lived in by Sir John’s descendants until 1529 when it passed to the Kenn family and then, in 1614, to the Poulett family, who, through marriage, owned extensive lands throughout Somerset.

But after being let to tenants the property slowly went into a decline before being sold, in Victorian times, to a Bridgwater man, Thomas Daniel. Daniel, who also let out the manor house, took down most of the old medieval building and replaced it with a far more practical farmhouse.

This, in its turn, was demolished to make way for a vicarage, community centre and a church, Holy Cross – part of the post-war Knowle West housing estate.

A surviving part of the medieval court, however, an octagonal 15th-century stair turret, was incorporated into the new vicarage. In fact it’s a miracle that this bit of heritage survived at all – it took a protest in the Times newspaper to shame the church authorities into preserving it.

Although it has been given a Grade II* listing the building, now empty and disused, has been placed on English Heritage’s "At Risk" register.

As no complete ground plan (or proper documentary record) survives for the old house, we only have a vague idea as what it looked like in Sir John’s time.

The mansion, which was reached by a long track from Lock’s Mills, now buried under Hartcliffe Way, also incorporated a small house and garden in Crox Bottom, near the old Wills’ factory.

In Anglo-Saxon times Filwood (Knowle West) was part of the Kingswood Forest, a royal hunting estate which encompassed large areas of South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

At the time of the Domesday survey (1086AD) the Inns Court area was part of Bishopsworth (the "Bishop’s Place") and firmly in Somerset.

Despite the industrial and housing expansion of nearby Bristol, the area remained rural, working farmland, for many hundreds of years.

It included Filwood Farm (demolished in the 1940s) and Inns Court Farm, which both had medieval origins.

The 1930s saw massive, inner city, slum clearances by the Corporation of Bristol.

Just before the outbreak of the Second World War, they decided that they would buy land here, including Inns Court, and develop the area for new homes.

It became known as Filwood, or more popularly, Knowle West. In the early 1970s, a new wave of development, based on a cul-de-sac type layout, was pioneered at Inns Court.

But this has proved unsatisfactory and the estate is now threatened with demolition and a possible long-term rebuilding programme.

What will happen to the remains of Inns Court itself remains to be seen, but it’s vital, given it’s heritage, that it’s preserved in any new development.

If you would like to know more about Roman settlements in the area, and the history of Inns Court, then there is an excellent booklet by Reg Jackson available from Bristol’s M shed museum.

Injection-moulded polystyrene ruler

The colours in the image are the outcome of birefringence and relate to the residual strain in the polystyrene. The pattern of strain is indicative of the flow of material for the duration of the injection procedure and it highlights the injection point (identified as a ‘gate’) at the finish of the ruler the molecular alignment is greatest near this point. Towards the edges of the ruler and along its length, the material becomes much more relaxed and as the molecular alignment falls, the retardation of light is much less. If heated above the glass transition temperature of polystyrene (about 100 deg C), the material will tend to unwind, particularly along the centreline, near the gate. This will outcome in a wrinkled kind.

Program

NYC – Metropolitan Museum of Art: Armor of Emperor Ferdinand I

Armor of Emperor Ferdinand I, dated 1549
Kunz Lochner (German (Nuremberg), ca. 1510-1567), armorer
German (Nuremberg)
Etched steel H. overall (as mounted): 67 in. (170.2 cm) Wt. 52.9lb. (24kg)

The ownership of this armor by Ferdinand I (1503-1564) is suggested by the heraldic emblems on the toe caps: the imperial double-headed eagle surmounted by a royal crown, which signifies Ferdinand’s status as king of the Romans and designated successor to his brother, Emperor Charles V. The image of the Virgin and Youngster on the breastplate was also used by Charles V on his armors. The backplate is decorated with crossed staves and firesteels, the insignia of the Order of the Golden Fleece, of which Ferdinand was a member. Kunz Lochner, Nuremberg’s most celebrated armorer of the period, produced many armors for both Ferdinand and his son Archduke Maximilian (15271576), like two matching armors produced about 1546 that are related to the one particular noticed here.

The helmet was not originally produced for the Museum’s armor but has been associated with it because at least the early nineteenth century.

The collection of armor, edged weapons, and firearms in The Metropolitan Museum of Art ranks with these of the other wonderful armories of the globe, in Vienna, Madrid, Dresden, and Paris. It consists of approximately 15,000 objects that range in date from about 400 B.C. to the nineteenth century. Although Western Europe and Japan are the regions most strongly represented–the collection of a lot more than five thousand pieces of Japanese armor and weapons is the finest outdoors Japan–the geographical variety of the collection is extraordinary, with examples from the Close to East, the Middle East, India, Central Asia, China, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and North America. The Arms and Armor Galleries were renovated and reinstalled in 1991 to show to much better impact the outstanding collection of armor and weapons of sculptural and ornamental beauty from around the world.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s permanent collection consists of a lot more than two million functions of art from about the planet. It opened its doors on February 20, 1872, housed in a building positioned at 681 Fifth Avenue in New York City. Beneath their guidance of John Taylor Johnston and George Palmer Putnam, the Met’s holdings, initially consisting of a Roman stone sarcophagus and 174 largely European paintings, speedily outgrew the accessible space. In 1873, occasioned by the Met’s acquire of the Cesnola Collection of Cypriot antiquities, the museum decamped from Fifth Avenue and took up residence at the Douglas Mansion on West 14th Street. Nevertheless, these new accommodations had been temporary following negotiations with the city of New York, the Met acquired land on the east side of Central Park, exactly where it constructed its permanent residence, a red-brick Gothic Revival stone &quotmausoleum&quot designed by American architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mold. As of 2006, the Met measures almost a quarter mile long and occupies much more than two million square feet, much more than 20 instances the size of the original 1880 developing.

In 2007, the Metropolitan Museum of Art was ranked #17 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1967. The interior was designated in 1977.

Elegant Gathering in the Apricot Garden
Ming dynasty, ca. 1437
Right after Xie Huan (Chinese, ca. 1370ca. 1450)
China
Handscroll ink and colour on silk

This painting documents a historical gathering of nine scholar-officials enjoying cultural pursuits while savoring spring weather in the Apricot Garden in Beijing on April six, 1437. The host, Yang Rong, seated in front of an ornamental rock, has thoughtfully provided scholarly amusements, such as antiques, paintings, brushes and ink, and games, for his illustrious guests.

These portraits of prestigious court officials depict them secure in their positions and in full harmony with their surroundings. The meticulous consideration to each and every individual’s facial attributes as effectively as the varied, descriptive brushwork in the rocks and trees in the surrounding garden are standard of early Ming court taste.

Mounted soon after the painting are poems composed by all of the participants to commemorate this gathering, starting with a preface inscribed in a dignified clerical script by Yang Shiqi (13651444), the oldest member in attendance and, as chief advisor to the emperor, the highest-ranking government official of his day. An inscription by Weng Tonghe (18301904) on the brocade mounting preceding the painting identifies all the participants. Primarily based on a composition by the noted court painter Xie Huan, the painting is most likely a modern copy created for a single of the other participants at the gathering.

Base for the Front of a Funerary Couch
Nothern Qi (550-577) – Sui (581-618)
Late 6th-early 7th century
Marble with traces of pigment

Used in underground tombs in the north from the fifth through seventh century, stone couches had been commissioned for men and women from China and for foreigners living there. Parallels with excavated pieces and references to Iranian and Central Asian imagery recommend that this base was portion of a couch produced for a merchant from Sogida, an important trading nation in Central Asia.

Winged and beribboned animals prance in the roundels at the prime of the base although four tlins crouch beneath them. In the center, two birdmen stand to either side of a censer encirlced by dragons and supported by a dwarflike caryatid. The mouth coverings (padam) worn by the birdmen hyperlink them to priests of Zoroastrianism, a religion practiced in Persia and much of western Central Asia.

The four arms, scanty clothes, and weapons of the guardians on the edges of the base reflect Indian traditions. These figures might constitute the earliest preserved representation of the theme of guardians wrestling with demons, which was regularly depicted in Buddhist art following the eighth century.
