Chances are, if you view the Avon from the viewpoint of the Clifton Suspension bridge, you will see more mud than water. It is not surprising that hundreds of years ago, when the port of Bristol was right in the city, boats were built with flat bottoms so that they could 'sit' on the mud when the tide was out (hence the expression 'Ship shape and Bristol fashion'). But the river makes an impressive sight as it flows through the Avon Gorge. Another great viewpoint is from the 'sea walls'; the green downs adjacent to the bridge.
