  • Explore Bristol on Foot: Cliftonwood

    Explore Bristol on Foot: Cliftonwood As the name suggests, for many centuries the slopes below Clifton, down to the River Avon, were wooded. In the Middle Ages Cliftonwood was home to much wildlife and, until stopped by their bishop, the monks of St Augustine's Abbey (now Bristol Cathedral) ran a pack of hounds there.

    Jullia Killingback and Michael Pascoe discover the hidden delights of present-day Cliftonwood, its fine Georgian terraces and impressive halls such as Goldeney House. Includes quiz, history maps and quirky facts.

    The full circular walk is about three miles long and should take about 2 hours 15 minutes to complete, but you can join it at any stage.
