    Brabazon Hangar, Filton Airfield, South Gloucestershire Some minimal history - there is a hell of a lot of history surrounding Filton Airfield as a whole so I would certainly recommend reading up on it if Aviation history tickles you. Filton Airfield, otherwise known as Filton Airport...

    Rooftopping in Bristol - The Haymarket Premier Inn (City Centre) One of the tallest buildings in Bristol just so happens to be this - a rather grotty looking Premier Inn hotel. Construction started on the building in 1969 and it opened in 1972 as Avon House, to be used by the Avon County...

    Report - Clifton Suspension Bridge: Clifton Tower, Bristol - June 2015

    Clifton Tower of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol Only a quick report this. It's another one from the archives, but this one was special as it's such an iconic structure. It's pretty much THE thing that people know our city for (along with a big ol' boat). It's the commuter route into...

    Report - End of the Bristol ParcelForce sorting office building

    A regularly explored building in Bristol has now been completely demolished. Sad to say I never got inside, but having commuted past it for nearly 10 years I'm sad to see it go.
