The Bristol Shaun In The City Sheep Roundup #2

The Shaun in the City Bristol trail is now in full swing and the sheeps are looking Baa-rilliant (hehe).

Welcome to my second sheep spotting round up – this is going to be a little shorter than my last one, as this only covers one week (*ahem* one day *ahem*) of rounding up these beauties – so is a little more manageable 🙂

This week I picked up the remaining straddlers on the harbourside trail and completed two of the harder trails – the Heritage and Downs trails.

So lets get down to it and round up those sheep…

Completing the Harbourside Trail

A little pitstop… huh? Well, at the moment very near Life Aquatic is the Bristol Whale project – an art installation made up of plastic bottles – it’s too good to let pass without a photo 🙂

Okay, focus Jesse, focus…

Onto one of my favourite Shauns…

Well, that’s it for the Harbourside Trail – so lets move onto something a little more taxing – the Heritage Trail. To start this trail we have to walk back on ourselves a bit towards the Bristol Hippodrome.

Another little diversion before the next Shaun, I mean a building such as Bristol Cathedral can’t be passed without showing you what it looks like… before it started to rain!!!

This of course was on our way to bow down to…

Wow, another diversion but come on, shame about the clouds but the view from *erm* nearby Cabot Tower can’t be turned down.

Back on ground level we come across…

Up the brutal hill known as park street we must now go – heading to Bristol museum, where we’ll find two Shauns, the first of which is all lit up like…

And then there were dinosaurs, I mean come on – I HAD TO LOOK, I haven’t been here in ages! 🙂


Soooo… after 3 visits back and forth into the museum because 1) I didn’t realise there was two Shaun’s there and 2) I forgot to check one of them off on the app I got moving onwards and upwards towards…

And with that we come to the end of the Heritage trail. But the day was still *kind of* young and I wanted more – I headed up another hill of death otherwise known as Whiteladies Road, past BBC Bristol until I came to the start of the Downs trail.

The Downs Trail

This trail takes you onto the Downs (surprise!) and into Westbury-on-Trym – there’s quite a lot more walking involved than on the other trails (and a steep hill or two) and far less interesting landmarks along the way but none the less – here we go, starting with…

Groovy Baby brings us to the end of the Downs Trail and funnily enough to the end of this post bringing the total sheep found to 48 of 70.

If you want to catch the first 31 Shauns in my sheep round up check out the roundup part 1. And don’t forget this art trail is raising funds for the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal, the charity which supports sick babies and children from Bristol, across the region and further afield.

You can find out more about Shaun in the City on their website.

  1. I love these posts Jesse! I can’t decide which of the Shauns is my favourite – they’re all so cute!! I love that you include pics of other things you spotted on the trails too 🙂

    • Awww, thanks Sarah – I know what you mean, every time I go out I seem to find a new favourite only to want to pick another one a few minutes later hehe 🙂
