Sadly it’s only Devon Road, Easton. But I’m now back on the cycle track, and delving around I have found some further info on the old railway line.
The Old Midland Line
The route to Bath passes the Bitton Railway station, Avon Valley Railway, a short section of line that has been restored, with various examples of rolling stock and Engines.
Avon Valley Railway
The branch line to Bristol now forms part of the Cycle track, and travels into the City, passing through Easton and finishing near the Old Market area of east Bristol.
This is the Bristol-Bath cycle track, which used to be part of the midland railway line, and if travelling east-north-east, eventually a junction, one to Bath an’t’other to Gloucester. The track to Bath has been kept as a cycle way.
A rare event, the 5 of us in the same room…
We were all sat around the TV, playing the latest gadget, The Wii, which I think has been named ‘Dylan’.
It was the first time in ages that we were all gathered together, all playing Wii golf.. and one spectator..
It’s a glorious day today, lots of sun and blue sky, it looks a good day for a ramble, well a slow walk up the cycle track.. which I had hoped to do a few days ago, but cooking duties took over.
It really does look bright and cheerful outside, too good to stay in…
Who’s who: Me in stripes, Fliss, Tom, Chris, and Matt sitting down.
Just thought I’d pop online to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and or Festive greetings. A journey in the dark…. well fog at any rate… I hope you all have a good one.
Thanks for the messages, I’m begining to pick up speed again, just hope I dont hit reverse this time.
The picture is of my dad riding a Penny farthing which had been brought in for repair at the bike workshops in Chipping Sodbury, probably sometime in the 1940s. I think it was quite a rarity even back then.
