Learning outcomes
Bristol Ariel Rowing Club
Pump House Lane
St Anne’s Park

The club is at the very end of Robertson Drive. Once you go through the wooden gate onto Pump House Lane, you will see cars parked on the right. There is limited vehicular access to the club so cars must be parked here.

Walk past the Pump House Apartments, towards a second wooden gate and continue along the path towards the ClubHouse.

Please park on the right hand side of Pump House Lane at an angle. If the car park is full you will need to turn around and park on Robertsons Drive. When parking on Robertsons Drive please pay due consideration to other road users and residents.

Please do not park on the left hand side (river side) of Pump House Lane as there are lights buried in the ground that break if cars park on top of them. The paved car park adjacent to the Pump House Apartments is private and for residents only. To ensure full access to the club by emergency services the stretch between the Pump House Apartments and the Club needs to be clear.

The walk to the club from the parking area can be muddy so it's advisable to bring wellington boots.
