TRANSPORT: CLIFTON ROCKS AND BRISTOL SUSPENSION BRIDGE TOUR
We are pleased to announce a fantastic opportunity to either see the Clifton Rocks railway or a tour of Bristol suspension bridge.
The Clifton Rocks Railway was a major engineering achievement in the 1890s and operated for 40 years, transporting people from Hotwells Road to Clifton in passenger cars running in a tunnel in the Avon gorge on steeply inclined tracks.
The tour will be an extended tour down in to the tunnels. The railway encompasses such a huge amount of Bristol’s and general engineering history. This tour is not one to be missed!
The Clifton Suspension Bridge is World famous and one of the essential things to see in the West Country. The bridge is a beautiful piece of engineering lovingly maintained by the Trustees and in better condition now than it was when built!
Following the tour, we will be meeting in the Avon Gorge hotel for some nibbles and a drink with a chance to get to know other local Young Members and network with them.
