The Brentry Certified Inebriate Reformatory was founded in 1898. In 1922 it became an institution for the mentally ill, and renamed Brentry Certified Institution. It was renamed the Brentry Colony in 1930, and in 1948, under the National Health Service, it became Brentry Hospital closing in 2000. Since then redeveloped for residential housing and re-named Royal Victoria Park. The Chimney stood where house #5 has been built.

The chimney was intersected station ST57/INT055, 3rd order, computed 1978 and destroyed April 1985. Brentry Colony was a mental hospital and its administration building, now known as Repton Hall, remains as apartments where I stayed for a few days. The hospital boiler house and chimney site are now occupied by housing.

Brentry Colony was sited on a hill in the northern suburbs of Bristol. It was founded in 1898 as The Brentry Certified Inebriate Reformatory. Much of the site including that of the trig is now occupied by modern high density suburban houses with small leafy gardens and twisty drives.
