Bristol City Council testing of water quality in the Floating Harbour was suspended with the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020. Following enquiries by Friends of Bathurst Basin, testing water quality had been resumed in Bathurst Basin in August 2019 after a seven-year period without tests. Floating Harbour testing was resumed on 7th July 2020, but not for Bathurst Basin. Read more “Water quality testing”

Maintenance work on Bathurst Bridge, which started on 1st September, is now complete. The image shows the repaired footpath along the eastern side of the bridge. Friends of Bathurst Basin reported the poor state of the footpath in August last year, so the repair is most welcome.
