He does like walking in Memphis St Werburgh's, especially Narroways, but that's not where we were on Monday...

Spotted the car top right of the picture and realised I walked along there last year. The foot/cycle path running alongside the Portbury/Portishead line perchance?

Of course the actual car probably wasn't there then!

Yes thanks johneyw, you jogged my memory, as I walked up Nightingale Valley last year as part of a circular walk from Clifton, through the woods and under the suspension bridge. Very enjoyable.
