Redcliffe Square was built as part of the
Gunter estate in the 1860s. The area was dominated by farmland
prior to building development and Redcliffe Gardens used to be one
of the old routes through the area, called Walnut Tree Walk, until
the estate was laid out. Robert Gunter initiated most of the
development of the estate, and much of the design was by his
surveyor George Godwin working with his brother Henry. The name
Redcliffe was chosen due to Godwin's connections with Bristol.
This square was given to the Borough for free
in 1949 providing its character was maintained.
