Walking down the Welsh Back

On a recent lunchtime walk in Bristol I walked down the Welsh Back.

I started off at Redcliffe Bridge looking down the Welsh Back.

Welsh Back

The Welsh Back is a wharf and street alongside the floating harbour in the centre of the city. It tooks it name due the frequent visits by ships from Wales.

The Welsh Back has been an important quay since the 13th century, when it was located on the tidal course of the River Avon.

Walking up the Welsh Back you find yourself at Bristol Bridge.
