While visiting St Nicholas’ Church we also had a quick look in on the markets. Given it was a Sunday they were not open but when I checked back a few days later it was different.
Queens Square is fairly near the waterfront but a totally different world. It was built during the early 1700s; large comfortable homes for the well to do.
One of Bristol’s interesting buildings is the Llandoger Trow, a mid 17th Century pub near the docks. It is said to have inspired authors and contain ghosts. Although damaged by bombing during World War 2 and reduced in size it has continued operating as a pub. Unfortunately it was unexpectedly closed when we visited.
Further down the street were many more pubs and a 17th century almshouse. We had a quick drink and rest in one of the pubs. As we were leaving an unusually decorated car drew up. The people who emerged were those one would not normally expect to see in such a car nor were they dressed to be unobtrusive.
