113.Portbury - Portishead circular (11.1 miles)

 7.5/10


Parking @ Portbury BS20 7TN, UK





Sunshine promised so headed coastal ! only a heavy mist all day put pay to the far reaching views across Bristol channel and in to the valleys !. 
The walk starts in Portbury and while putting boots on heard a rustle in bushes about 5ft from me a Badger scarpered across behind van ! A Good start and within 30ft of M5 who of thought it .So after leaving Parking Past Pub The Priory we enter Priory Woods on entrance this unusual Road ,track or Ford ? 


Prior's Wood was once part of the Tyntesfield Estate who made their fortunes from cloth, guano, wine and fruit imports.


Prior's Wood now owned by Avon Wildlife Trust

The Portishead Railway Group has long campaigned for the Portishead to Bristol railway line to be re-opened.
Re-opening is now going ahead as a key part of the MetroWest project which will link and upgrade the railway system in the Bristol area.
