Brisl with Lisl

 

Chapter one

 

Way back in the summer (ha ha) Lisl took a few of us scers on a walking tour of the bits of Bristol that normally get overlooked. I thought I knew Bristol pretty well and have enjoyed this charming city since I was a child. It was the 'big smoke' for us and only twelve miles from home (Bath). I like the little coloured houses with flat roofs. I like Brunnel's steamship the SS Great Britain. I like Bristol City FC. I like the river Avon. I like Temple Meads station. I like Georgian Clifton. I like the suspension bridge and the Avon Gorge. I like the local accent where the letter L is sounded at the end of words quite unexpectedly - like Windl for Window.

 

Kein bild wochenende

 

This weekend there was such a high standard of commenting that the judges have been unable to find a single winner. The prestigious award is therefore given to Astrid, Tom, Brian, Bill, Tiff (aka Chris Phillips)

Congratulations to you all.

I like that lamp post church spire...
gutteridge: Annoying that they should plant that right there Larry.

Right! This snap seems to hint at why some parts of Bristol might get overlooked by fun-loving tourists, Chad.
gutteridge: Really Ray! I wish I knew what.
Nice line up on the pole against the steeple! I enjoyed the lesson on Bristolian...
gutteridge: It is a pretty unique accent Elizabeth, like Geordie is, but less famous.
You outdid yourself, Chad with this synchronization. And is that Lisl there? I can just picture your walk, having been on a couple of them already.
gutteridge: It was a great day Ginnie, as you would expect. I did not notice the lamp post.

That's not me, Chad!
gutteridge: No, it’s St Mary Redcliffe Lisl. Did you watch the television programme, The bombs that fell on Britain. The one about Brisl was very goodl.

Like yourself I am a fan of Bristol Chad. It's about time too that pointy church got a light on top of it..
gutteridge: Did you watch the television programme, The bombs that fell on Britain? The one about Bristol was very good, with some incite into the angry Bristolians.

Do I need to worry the next time I am in Bristol..... I see lampposts are running around and starting to photobomb.... this lamppost jumped in front of you blocking the view of the church.....
I hope the judges did not need any aspirine yesterday??
gutteridge: I should be concerned if I were you Astrid, I’m sure it wasn’t there before. The judges just could not decide a winner.
Until today, Chad, I thought ‘Bristol’ meant something else. I see the world in a completely different light now.Thank you so much Chadwiseman.
gutteridge: I could give you quite aN education on many things Richard, but then you might be dangerous.

Funny title - is this St. Mary Redcliffe Church, hidden behind the ugly lamp post? I like the old Harbour in Brisl.
gutteridge: I’m pleased you like the rhyming title Philine. I agree with your comment.
The city of my birth. There is much to like about Bristol
gutteridge: Well I agree that your entering this world was one of the greatest things about Brisl.

I like the appendage on the lamp post. Those in Scumsville are less ornate. Was I part of the same tour?
I suppose this was the tour of the light standard. I liked the video. I hope everyone is as easy to understand when I visit in summer.

The church spire seems to have grown a street light.
Shame they built that church where it is, your picture of the lamp post is competely ruined. Love the video BTW.
