    Meeting filum stars on an evening out in Bristol. Piccy thread. 4th Jul 18 at 9:19 AM
    I went out with my friends the SAGA Louts last night, circumnavigating the docks and meeting a few famous faces in the process.

    Outside the church of Saint Mary Redcliffe. Locally this would be pronounced as one word. Ssssmaryredcliffe.



    From the previous Gromit Unleashed, across the water.



    Down in Zumerzet.



    The Lion Gromit



    Isambard Kingdom Fruitcake. Sorry about the legs.



    Aardman Animations studio. Through the windows, hence the poor quality.

    Gromit.



    Morph.



    Oh Bollards!



    Nearby is Banksy's, The Girl with the Pearl Earring. The earing is a wall mounted bunglar alarm.



    Dockside cranes.



    Steam crane, still operational.



    GWR Guards Van.



    The posh part of the docks. Not many of us could afford to live by here.



    Brizzle docks and SS GB.



    Underfall Yard, a working boatyard that can be visited for free by Joe and Josephine public. The large building in the background is a former bonded warehouse, now a self storage unit.



    The pub, at last.





    A Gromit on Park Street.



    Long John Wallace, not far from a pub called the Llandoger Trow, which is allegedly where a Mr Stevenson wrote Treasure Island.

    They did something similar with statues of Oor Wullie in Dundee a few years ago, I kept meaning to try to track them all down but to my eternal shame, I never did

    The latest thing in that area is statues of penguins
