A view from Kelston Road over the Newbridge area. In the middle distance, construction of the Newbridge caravan site is underway. A double-decker bus (left) can be seen at or near the Newbridge terminus loop. On the skyline in the centre are the Trees at Whiteway. The green (untouched) field in the centre of the photo is now the Newbridge Park & Ride, constructed in the 1980s. The marina is out of shot to the right. Just visible in the upper right of the photo is the old Midland railway bridge over the Avon, which now carries the Bristol-Bath cycle path. Factory units in Brassmill Lane trading estate are visible upper left. The dark mass of trees are Carrs Wood in Twerton.
