On Sunday 11th June Merchants Landing will feature as part of an urban orienteering event organised by Bristol Orienteering Klub. The full event takes place over the weekend and covers the Harbourside from Temple Meads to Cumberland Basin. The impact on the estate should be very low with just a couple of checkpoints located on street lamp posts within Merchants Landing and a couple of others nearby. Residents may like to watch out for the occasional orienteers at any time between 11am and 1.30pm that day. Read more “Bristol Orienteering”

Crane 29

Crane 29Crane 29 – a one-bedroom ‘treehouse’ conversion of the crane next to Prince Street Bridge – is expected to open this summer. The crane is one of four listed cranes dating back to the 1950s when up to 40 lined the docks. The conversion is the idea of glamping holiday specialist Canopy & Stars and will be available for just four months from June. Canopy and Stars assure us that ‘in late September it will disappear but not before leaving the world a little greener.’ Read more “Crane 29”
