Organised by Peter Wise (who is director of Minuteman Press Bristol and deputy chairman of the Royal Geographical Society Western Region), and sponsored by Minuteman Press Bristol, the Royal Geographical Society hosted a field day in Bristol entitled ‘Bristol’s Beginning, Bridge and Botany’.
The field day was developed in association with the National Trust, Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust and University of Bristol.
The day began with a tour of Leigh Woods, lead by a National Trust head warden. Next stop was the Clifton Suspension Bridge and a walking presentation by Bridge Visitor Services. A private tour of the recently relocated University of Bristol Botanic Gardens concluded the field day.
