Chew Stoke to The banks of the Severn
Went east out of town and into the Ashton court estate , pretty place with deer mowing the lawns for them!
Climbed out of the estate and entered Bristol via the Clifton suspension bridge cracking piece of engineering!
Then followed the bristol community forest path through town not much in the way of forest to my eyes! Went through some charming and no doubt incredibly rich suburbs and then through the council estates where I was able to restock food and get some more cash, from the council estates we decended to my chosen route over the M5 only to find the bridge had been demolished oh sugar I said..........
Did find an alternative route through Hallen which just happened to have an open pub , so that worked out nicely! Following this continued through the Crooks marsh petrochemical plants.........
and finally to the severn way and our pitch on the banks of the estuary with great views to Wales and both the severn bridges as the sun sets over the water.
I think we managed to see most aspects of Bristol today, nice city too hilly tho !
