Intersection

By Chris Guy posted on April 22, 2017 in Urban

A trip out to the tip (or Household Waste Recycling Centre, to give it its proper title) at Avonmouth was enough to arouse my interest at the surreal no man’s land that surrounds the Kings Weston Lane site.

This is where the M49 and M5 motorways intersect, it is also home to the Lawrence Weston Solar Farm, numerous wind turbines, the St Anthony’s Park traveller site and a Sewage Pumping Station owned by Wessex Water. All in all it is a strange non-place and one that I wanted to explore further. So a couple of days later I jumped on my bike and headed over there, this is what I found…
