Gaol Ferry Bridge

Untitled-1The last stop on the Sarah tour of Bristol was Gaol Ferry Bridge.  Just a short walk from the centre of the city in an area that was having plenty of rejuvenation.  There were other potential areas we could of visited Battery Point which was miles away in Portishead and Air Balloon Road, which once again was away from the city centre.  I did visit the Thekla, which is a former cargo ship moored in Bristol.  It has been converted to a venue and is where Sarah Records threw a massive party when the label folded.


Below left is a jigsaw of Bristol Temple Meads Station and each piece was given away with a single.  Below right is what Temple Meads looks like now.


This ends the Sarah tour of Bristol.  I am planning a trip to Salford Lads Club as my next great indie pilgrimage.

  1. The Thekla is a great little venue. Only been there once (Kristin Hersh, 2007 I think) but was really impressed with it. Apparently it was once owned by Vivian Stanshall of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.
