In his own lively style, Ed Hall is once again leading his informative walk around the streets of Bristol’s historic old town area. The walk starts at Bristol Bridge and follows the course of the old Norman walls and Saxon stockade where the line of ancient defences is still evident.
There are numerous points of interest along the way, including the last remaining combined church tower/city gate, a remarkable Art Nouveau facade, the oldest city graveyard and an amazing Venetian-inspired bank frontage.
Although the walk proper begins at Bristol Bridge, the gathering point beforehand is the Merchant Seamen’s memorial at the Welsh Back end of King Street (BS1 4SS). The walk ends at the Corn Exchange, Corn Street, and lasts from 1-1.5 hours.
Members will be invited by email to join the walks.
