You're kidding! When I worked in the Wimpy Bar next to the Hippodrome there were ships tied up there! One that stands out in my memory was the Trinity House flagship, "Patricia". She sparkled amongst the scruffy coasters. Fancy turning such an atmospheric place into a bloody duckpond!

John the Bristol people share your wrath, they hate what the city planners have done to the waterfront so I'm told. You worked next to the Hippodrome did you,when was that.??

About 1965. Don't tell me the Hippodrome is also flats? I lived in Bristol for a couple of years and decided to get out when I found myself saying:"What bist ee doin' yerrr?" in a Yorkshire accent!
