Stokes Croft: gentrification in action

Stokes croft has always been built on a few key themes: driving, parking where you want, fast-food, paid sex and substance abuse.

Yet  those traditions are under threat.

Here a delivery cyclist traipses along the lower croft

At the other end, two cyclists are waiting to turn right. Not only are they both without helmets or hi-viz, there are two people on the bicycle in front.
Round the corner, more bicycles, more people looking -happy-, even though they cycled there

A few streets away, the traditions of the area continue
But notice this: as this person sleeps drunk on the pavement, he wears hi-viz.

Even here, the traditions of Stokes Croft -no, of Britain itself -are being eroded!
