Right on the northwestern edge of Bristol, the Lawrence Weston housing estate may not seem like an obvious place to go for a walk. However, the area benefits from its close proximity to both Blaise Castle Estate and the wilder areas that border Avonmouth.
Walk Thirty-Six: Lawrence Weston is a longish circuit that seeks to join together all the most interesting parts of the area, including patches of wilderness and the few surviving historic buildings that date back to the area’s rural past. In the process, some walking along more ordinary suburban streets will be inevitable.
With my next update, I hope to return to the inner-suburbs with a hunt for wild places in Whitehall and St. George.
