Let me be brutally honest. I always assumed Portishead was a dump. Why else would Sir Quinno have left it for Reading ?
If you look closely below you can probably see one across the water in Wales.
You’ll remember the views from near the Ship last week; they were equally stunning from the edge of the Marina.
What a great sight from my drone. Loads of folk wandering round the marina site, too.
No, I don’t think that first photo is Stonehenge, though it’s actually more impressive than THAT blot on the lovely A303.
Suddenly, Portishead looks posh, and not in a Peterborough way.
It’s got a Waitrose, a Spoons, a Costa,
and a craft bar, of sorts.
I cannot lie, I was in and out in 3 minutes, plus the 5 minutes it takes to be lectured on Track and Trace and spell my own name wrong.
That Bristol Beer Factory was JUST about a 3, I guess. The mustard trousers on the bloke outside were worth a 4, but that’s one variable too much.
What a lovely place. If I never wanted to visit The North again, I could quite fancy one of those houses overlooking the Severn.
But I do.
