Southville is an inner city ward of Bristol, England, situated on the south bank of the River Avon and northwest of Bedminster. Most of the area’s houses were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries either for workers in the Bristol coal mining industry or the tobacco factories of W. D. & H. O. Wills, homes of the eponymous "Wills Girls". The world headquarters of Imperial Tobacco, the world’s fourth largest international tobacco company, is still situated in the ward. Southville was also a centre for the tanning industry.

The area was bombed in the second world war, with a large number of streets losing one or more houses. Southville was the unintended target of the many short-falling bombs aimed at the adjoining dock facilities and traffic. The subsequent post-war rebuilding is noticeable on many streets, where the generic style of house building changes to modern construction. Infilling of wartime damage is, perhaps surprisingly, still continuing. The house price boom of the early 21st Century has seen new builds on existing vacant sites and on bombed sites which had been previously used for other activities such as pre-fabricated garages and car sales lots.

The area has been gentrified since the early 1980s, accompanying the national rise in house prices. It has been jokingly referred to as Lower Clifton, a reference to a more prosperous area of the city. New bars and restaurants and the nationally renowned Tobacco Factory theatre attract visitors to the area, while the Southville Community Centre and Southville School have become the central features of a vibrant community atmosphere. There are many artists living in the area; during the annual Arts Trail they open their houses to the public and show and sell their work.

Dame Emily Park, on the site of the old Dean Lane coal pit head (closed December 1906), is celebrated for its popular skateboard park and the vivid graffiti, the latter regularly updated by a variety of artists on a weekly basis. Greville Smyth Park is the largest local park and is popular for sports, families and dog walkers. Bristol South swimming pool, a grade II listed building in the south of Dame Emily Park is currently undergoing a renovation to modernise its facilities. Southville Community Development Association (SCDA) is a local community-led organisation that supports many local projects and also runs the Southville Centre – a community centre, cafe, nursery, after school club and older peoples Monday club.

We then inserted into the teeoutlet a piece of 6-in. horizontal pipe, with a 6-in. gate atthe end; and after bracing the 8-in. valve as firmly as possible,we gradually closed it, diverting the stream into a horizontaldirection, and carrying it out of our way. This gave us oppor-tunity to dig around the well, beneath the derrick, and placefoundations for an anchorage, which would effectively holddown not only the valves, etc., but also the casings. After this we packed oakum tightly between the 8-in. andthe 6-in. casing; placed a heavy wrought-iron clamp around theformer, and by means of strong set-screws secured the 6-in.pipe against any possible upward movement. Finally, by clos-ing the 6-in. gate-valve on the horizontal pipe, the flow of oilwas entirely cut off. This was done January 19th, at 11.10 Til i: ORE r hi l.-u ELL NEAK HE i MON I .

Fig. – shows the apparatus as fitted t the well at the momentof the shut-down. For further protection against fire, a large iron cylinder wasconstructed to contain the valves, tee, etc., above ground, witha surrounding packing of sand, so thai a conflagration in theoil-pools may not be communicated to the well.? There was uaturally some doubt whether the well would n -spond promptly when reopened after a period of completeclosure. To test this point, the well was reopened about six-weeks after the operation above described. Some gas was dis-charged at first; but the solid stream of oil was immediately restored. III.
