We weave through Old City noting all the changes to the Saxon and Norman heart in defended by Royalists and taken by the Roundheads, and in Restoration become England's second city again, Bristol's second Golden Age of manufacture and trade that created an opulent city but a shameful inhumanity. We explore Broadmead and Quakers Friars, then head up to St James where we have a break at 17C White Hart, http://www.thewhitehartbristol.co.uk/about.html
Via a 17C farm we head via Georgian Squares to Cabot Circus then Old Market and Castle Park by the harbour, where Cromwell allowed the city to expand on the Castle Precincts returning to Corn Exchange via St Nicholas and All Saints.
Some steps and low hills but mainly fairly flat.
Here is the route.
Just over four miles, we will walk at a fair pace for most of it, just pointing out the features from the Reign of Charles I to William IV as this afternoon's walk starts at 3pm, from Llandogger Trow exploring a different part of the city and harbour, Regency to Edwardian Bristol http://www.meetup.com/The-Bath-Everything-Meetup-Group/events/117312352/
