GWR ‘King’ Class 4-6-0 Steam Loco No. 6024 At Bristol Temple Meads – Stag Party Oblivious


GWR ‘King’ class 4-6-0 steam loco No. 6024 ‘King Edward I’ runs light engine (and support coach) out of Bristol Temple Meads station after working ‘The Devonion’ return railtour from Plymouth to Bristol TM on June 4th 2011. I had videod it leaving TMs station earlier in the day and it was a surprise to see it pass through later that night when I was in my hotel bar having a quick drink. The noise is from a group of about 50 good natured Irishmen who were having a Stag ‘Do’ in Bristol and were oblivious to the steam loco passing as they were otherwise engaged!

Cleaning Equipment Specialists in Bristol Advise On Steam Cleaners, Pressure Washers and Vacuum Cleaners

Industrial cleaning equipment can be purchased from many outlets. The down side to buying from a box moving company is that they have no experience of matching equipment or cleaning chemicals to the application.  The customer is left with cleaning machines that will not get anywhere close to getting the job done or an inferior piece of equipment which will constantly break down under a given work load.

It is vital that you seek the advice from an expert when considering buying a steam cleaner, high pressure washer or vacuum cleaners Bristol. A specialist vacuum cleaner is necessary in areas of high risk from explosion or from hazardousdust. A gas fired or electrically heated steam cleaner may be a better alternative in certain areas.

With modern production facilities hygiene is of major importance. It is imperative that the right training is provided with the right piece of cleaning equipment weather it is a sweeper, floor scrubber drier or vacuum cleaner. Equipment used incorrectly or if neglected can cause a major hygiene problem or cause a health and safety issue.

For the Bristol, Avon and Wiltshire areas seek out professional cleaning equipment suppliers to give the correct advice before purchasing the wrong cleaning machines or cleaning chemicals and worst of all with no training.

Most experienced steam cleaner and pressure washer suppliers in Bristol and Wiltshire should provide a high level of service with engineers working mobile. They will generally hold spares and accessories for a whole range of cleaning equipment including cleaning chemicals, vacuum cleaner bags, sweeper brushes amongst general spares for steam cleaners and pressure washers. The best advice will improve you hygiene levels, boost productivity, save you down time and money whilst improving health and safety.

Is Bristol the UK’s Best Weekend Break Destination?

Short, spontaneous weekend breaks have become the new way to holiday without the fuss. As flights get cheaper and more and more accommodation and service providers switch to online to reduce costs, itâ??s never been easier to book a quick getaway at a good price. Of course this doesn’t mean jetting off abroad to spend just a couple of days soaking up whatever sun is available, but rather it gives you the options to make a good choice, and sometimes itâ??s the destinations at home that you could be missing out on the most.

Thriving, dynamic and cultured but with a strong link to its history and heritage, Bristol could be the perfect weekend break destination. Characterised by its proximity to the sea, which transformed the city during booms in the tobacco and paper industries, Bristol has since seriously redeveloped its city port.

Exploring the city on a short weekend break, you can’t help but notice the significance the arts play to the city centreâ??s atmosphere and architecture. From opera and ballet through to film and music, Bristol is renowned for producing and supporting consistently good art, and just one of the must-sees has to be the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, which was famously hijacked by the city’s notorious art bandit, Banksy. Likewise, a unique centre for the development and exhibition of contemporary art sits on an island in the Mersey Estuary known as Spike Island. Combining studio workshops, gallery space and a bar/cafe, this is a great place to see firsthand the city’s devotion to the arts.

No short break to Bristol would be complete without a trip to the SS Great Britain. Built by Brunel, this was once the largest steam powered ship in the world and was the most luxurious cruise liner in the seas. Built from iron, the Great Britain has now been carefully restored, with tickets also gaining you entry to The Maritime Heritage Centre and The Matthew; which is a nearby 15th century ship replica.

To experience just one of the ways in which Bristol has redeveloped itself and moved with the times, go down to what was once the bustling docklands to see At-Bristol. This scenic waterfront has now been turned into the hub of the cityâ??s culture, with an IMAX cinema and several galleries dotted in between bars, restaurants and cafes. Likewise, head to the St Nicholas Market which has been a prominent feature in the city for more than 250 years and combines tradition with a wealth of unique and quirky retailers.

To get out of the city centre on your short break, try the Clifton Observatory for a great view, or head to the Cheddar Caves, where limestone cliffs tower over the deep gorge and fascinating rock formations dominate the cave wall and ceilings. With a lot of Bristol hotels to be found around the city centre and good, cheap local transport, discover what could be your new favourite weekend getaway.
