Shaun in the City –Temple Trail

Our collection of the Shauns on the Temple Trail was disjointed. Partly because of the when and way we found them, but also because of the Bristol Harbour Festival which result in two being relocated.

The first two Shauns on the Temple Trail were found when we were just starting on the Saturday morning, prior to getting the bus to Cribbs Causeway for the Sheep Drive.

Our first two were located on the forecourt of Temple Meads railway station.

And that concluded the Temple Trail Shauns for Saturday as we headed to Cribbs Causeway on the Number 1 bus.

Being at a hotel in the Temple district, the next four Shauns were located before breakfast on Sunday. Sheepish was in Temple Church Gardens.

Crossing Temple Way towards Temple Meads station, the next two Shauns were at Temple Quay. The first was Great West Shaun at Temple Back East, acknowledging the link between Bristol and the Great Western Railway.

It was then breakfast time.

After breakfast, it was off to follow the Harbour Trail, however on the way the remainder of the Temple Trail Shauns were located. Willow was outside St Mary’s Redcliffe Church.

Although we were heading in the correct direction for the final two Temple Trail Shauns, they had been re-located from Queen Square as part of the Bristol Harbour Festival. We started the Harbourside Trail as we past one of that trails Shauns on our way to Aardman Aminations were the final two had been temporarily re-located.

Along with the resident Shaun and the five relocated Shauns from the Harbourside Trail, there was the two Temple Trail Shauns – No. 69 – King of the Carnival and No. 70 – Justice Lamb.
