This is the main route into the city from our side of town, the Stoke Gifford Bypass. It goes straight down to the M32 and is used by the Metro buses. Normally I struggle to cross this road at any time of day. This was 11am on Sunday and in normal times on a day like this the bus stop would have a gaggle of people waiting to get into the centre and have a wander around the docks, get some street food and have a few beers in the sunshine.

This gives you an idea how far out I am, on the left is the valley going into Bristol which is way out of sight. The buildings on the horizon are the University of the West of England (UWE) student village. Now being used by NHS workers as there’s a new Nightingale Hospital in the UWE conference centre. Thankfully currently empty.
