BRISTOL 176 – STREET SCENE 16

 

 


.
The Apple Tree, a little pub on the backstreets of Bedminster, in Bristol’s southern suburbs.  Its a cider house, wonderfully decorated with apples and, quite simply, I’m not sure I have the courage to pop in there for a drink – even though I live not too far away, I think I might well be regarded as an outsider.

But I have to say that I like what I see.  I spent 12 years in the Third World, in Kenya, and although I returned to the UK to live 31 years ago, those dozen years have to some extent altered my outlook on Life, for which I am grateful.  I am of course back at home here, only 20 miles or so from where I was born, and that’s a wonderful feeling, but since returning I have never really identified with or fitted in with many of the things that seem to motivate and excite modern UK society >>> LOL! rampant Materialism being a prime example!

And so back to this pub, and its simply being what it is and not caring what others think – at a time when a lot of the pub industry is dominated by big business, and fairly sterile and anaemic pub chains, that are mass produced and that offer exactly the same welcome wherever you are in the country.

In a nutshell, I suppose, I admire The Apple Tree because, in an age dominated by hype, brands and the media, it is totally real and genuine.

City centre bus stop, innocent enough, but the Devil (or then again, The FATman) lurks in the detail … that dark silhouette in front of the distant patch of blue.  You’re right … its not safe to go out in the dark …
