Aust and the old Severn Bridge

The other evening Richard Ford and I headed out to explore Aust in South Gloucestershire – site of the original Severn Bridge crossing from England into Wales. I’d seen Richard’s shots of the old Severn View Services building (once the site of the largest public cafeteria in the UK, but now an insurance call centre) previously on Instagram and was keen to get out there and have a wander around.
