Even with an old draft to work from, this was a hefty guide to put together! Walk Four: The Northern Edge explores the many ups and downs, steps, terraces and squares of the steep escarpment that lies just to the north of Bristol City Centre. The route explores the Georgian development of St. James’, St. Paul’s, Kingsdown, Tyndalls Park and Brandon Hill, and witnesses how the surviving historic fabric collides dramatically with modern blocks in places such the city’s hospital precinct. With so much historic interest at almost every turn, be prepared for a long read and a big one to print!
Next time: Out to the suburbs to explore an historic village centre and one of north Bristol’s river valleys.
