This week I wanted to walk Colliter’s Brook, one of the little streams that lead into the Avon. I haven’t walked it for ages, because the public footpath has been closed off for the (endless) Metrobus works, as the route runs alongside the brook. But the Metrobus works are finished, so I was hoping it would be opened, because it only crosses in a couple of places – and if they’re not, surely the bus lane can be closed off, like it is around Ashton Avenue Bridge? I was really excited to get back to the river, because I loved that walk, and I wanted to get all the way up to the Dundry Hills. So we crossed Winterstoke Road and walked down the path to the railway crossing and the start of the footpath.
