The Anthony Edmonds Charity was established in 1623 to provide educational support for the “poor scholars” of the ancient parishes of Henbury, Westbury on Trym & Horfield, which are in North West Bristol/South Glos.
The current Village Hall was built as a school in the Henbury area of Bristol, England. It was built in 1830 in a Tudor Revival style by Thomas Rickman on the site of a charity school which had stood on the site since 1624.
It has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building & has over the last two years undergone extensive renovation and upgrading of facilities.
The hall hosts community events and is available for regular use by community groups and societies, as well as for private hire for approved events such as Weddings, Family Parties etc.
