A short hop across the Suspension Bridge and you're in this beautiful estate, with its 850 magnificent acres of park and woodland, with superb views across Bristol. There are excellent nature trails, red deer grazing close by, a pitch and putt golf course, a miniature railway, a cafe inside the Mansion House, plus plenty of open space for flying a kite or just enjoying a walk. Various events are held here throughout the summer including Bristol Community Festival and the Balloon Fiesta. Hot air balloons launch from near the mansion House in the grounds every week - go on a Sunday afternoon, when the weather is fine and you may well see them being inflated and taking-off. There's partial disabled access - some trails would be tricky, but many of the paths are fine for wheelchairs.
What a bloody nightmare. I managed to climb 300 miles up and around mount bloody bristol on one of the hottest days in the history of mankind. Although I felt sorry for the people with buggies or children, it was every dude for himself. I wondered if I would survive as I choked to death on the dust kicked up by what can only be described as a biblical exodus.
Anyway, got there, payed£32,987.50p for a cheese burger, got stoned off of other peoples super smelling skunk, experienced some of the worst music I have ever heard. There were 2 exceptions, Kid Carpet who was quite brilliant and refreshing, and the Super Furry Animals who were fantastic. I could rant on about the lack of organisation and the poor..... well , everything, but the thoght of KC and the SFA makes me happy enough to stop writing now and therefore avoid completely destroying my karma.
