Just off Cotham Brow mate, go up Saint Michaels Hill, take a right to go up Horfield Road and then at the top of the hill (imagine you were going towards the Gloucester road) it becomes Cotham Brow. It's a tiny place in the small rank of shops by Kingsdown Leisure centre. http://www.cothamporterstor...

The only one I can think of (as an ex-ciderhead) is Addlestones, send her up to the Cotham Porter Stores or the Coronation Tap mate - someone up there will know :drunken:

To be honest I haven't a clue, Public land in my view belongs to everyone so as long as you're not picking wild flowers or protected species of plant what's the harm? If you dont do something with it then it will be left to ...

Went up to the Royal Fort House this weekend during "Door's Open" day and in the park I found Figs, Mulberries, Blackberry's and even a Grape Vine! The grapes themselves looked like Sloe's and had a waxy coating just like them, I broke one open to try it and it tasted lush! (forgive the bristolian!)...
