A house with a view

My sister moved into a house with an amazing view over Bristol about two years ago. It needed and still needs a lot of work doing.
It has been a lot of hard work for her and her son.
Below them the Wells Road curves round with lights blazing towards Templemead Station.

This is my Great Great Grandfather who was born in a farmhouse on this same hill in 1837. My sister knew none of this when she first moved there. She was born in Leicester, moved to Surrey, then lived in places as diverse as Liverpool, Cumbria, Belize, Tobago, and finally Bristol – living on the same hill as her Great Great Grandfather, and Great Great GrandMother: Daniel and Eliza.

Cabot Circus Bristol

The Cabot Circus shopping centre in Bristol opened a few months ago.
We got there quite late when the crowds had gone.
The Christmas decorations were on a big scale.

Just click on the images to see them big. The last one needs it to get half an idea of the scale of the place.
