My daughter took me up here to explore the little shops, including her favourite vintage shops. This is a nice little area of Bristol to explore.

Very quaint and full of history, haunted I believe, worth a visit. There is a unique video shop half way down which has an eleven seated cinema which you can hire for £25.
