The Farm Pub Path has long linked Muller Road with the village that is St Werbugh's "under the tunnel", a village which, unlike many rural villages, still boasts a decent pub and a thriving agricultural industry, albeit one not considered legal by this nation's drug laws.
You've been able to get from Muller Road/Horfield to the pub and back again on foot or by bike -but the one thing you have not been able to do is cross the allotments while travelling in a samba band. This has severely inconvenienced some potential path users, who like to travel in such a format for safety, and for the social aspects of travelling en-samba.
This weekend, the offical path opening took place.
As you can see from the video, the first testing of a sending a samba band along the path did prove successful, and the path is now open to all marching bands, be they samba, brass or bagpipe.
To celebrate the event, many people came out to enjoy the beers and cider on sale by the Farm Pub, the city farm and some local residents, before staggering home.
