I know Hanham & St George very well. Lovely part of Bristol IMO.

Used to live opposite St George park and also up by the Kingsway.

Didn't go down near Dundridge park much, the rather steep hill put me off most of the time. Although, living on Troopers Hill during a snowfall was very entertaining.

I also lived on Bryants Hill, on the St George/Hanham border.

The Trooper pub on Bryants Hill was my local from 1989 to when i moved to Stoke Gifford.

Still go there on occasions to see my mates.

My wife's parents were landlord/landlady there in the mid-late 80s.
