Brean Down Fort , another beautiful corner of North Somerset

Covid and its changes

Because of this COVID, I have decided no to travel abroad this year but concentrate on the discovery of England.

In the last  4 years I could see lots of the most important sites of Wiltshire because I was living there a part of my life,  but since my arrival in Bristol last year I focused my attention on the discovery of the city.

Moreover, I was working most of the times on weekends and never I could around with my friends.

But due to this COVID, I brought great changes to my life and one of them is exploring the local areas.

Obviously you need a car for this but thanks to my friends I can go around sharing the fuel costs or offering them ice creams or some food.

So last Sunday we decided to visit a location on the coast called Brean Down 

Brean Down 

It is very nice and you can have a walk on the hills even if suggest no to go on Sunday because full of families and can be hard to find a place where to park your car.

This location is in north somerset, part of the National Trust …its hills are a continuation of the Mendip hills standing 318 feet, extending 1.5 miles into the Bristol Channel.

The clifts of this promontory have lots of fossils arrived 250/300 million years ago.

People started to live on this promontory since the bronze age and there are the rests of a Roman-Celtic temple. Moreover, there is a fort named Brean down fort built in the far 1865 and used also during the second world war.

For its particular flowers and nature, it is also a site for the scientific national research. During the walk, you can take pictures at beautiful landscapes and at colourful flowers while your lungs enjoy the clean and fresh air of the Ocean.

You can have a walk around and then relax in one of those cafeterias at the end of the car parking keeping obviously your social distance.

Just a last note.

If you live in Bristol you can do an alternative route and go through the countryside of Somerset full of outstanding landscapes.
