Autumn Clifton walks: 25th Sept to 23rd Oct 2021

Gordon Young’s Clifton walks have proved very popular and he is continuing them into the autumn. Each walk is focused on commemorative plaques, with Walks I and III in Clifton, and Walk II descending to Hotwells.

Walk I Saturday 25th September 2021: Walking through history – celebrating enterprise & endeavour. 
Central Clifton & Pembroke Rd: 1.8 miles, 90 minutes, 11 plaques and 7 mansions. We head north, in the direction of Clifton College then return by way of Pembroke Road. There, we ponder on the grand mansions of nineteenth-century merchants.

Walk II Sunday 17th October 2021: Glimpses of Georgian splendour and eighteenth-century spa lodging houses.
West Clifton & Hotwells: the longest walk: 2.5 miles, 2 hours, 22 plaques. We progress to the gorge and descend to Hotwells. We ascend by a different, little-known route.

Walk III Saturday 23rd October 2021: Assyriology, neonatology, ethnology, epidemiology . . .
East Clifton: the shortest walk, at 1.6 miles, 90 minutes, and 22 plaques. But it doesn’t fall short on content: we are treated to a particularly wide-ranging selection of plaques.

Numbers will be limited to 10 persons per walk. Meeting point Christ Church, Clifton Green at 10.30am.
