Bristol Balloon Bales in Back Garden

Was slightly bemused, while standing at the bus stop on the corner of Falcondale Road and Henbury Road this morning (the one just slightly up from the new Texaco/Somerfield) to see a low-flying hot air balloon cruise gracefully over Canford Park, Henbury Golf Course and the back gradens of properties on Southdown Road.

Nothing unusual about that, Bristol being a European centre of hot air ballooning and Westbury on Trym being on the flight path from Ashton Court.

I had not, however, previously seen a bolloon come down in theat exact spot before - just behind the row of houses on the bend of Henbury Road.

No breaking glass heard, so presumably the golf course or Blasie Castle estate was the final landing spot.
