The path that runs along the River Avon between Green Park and Windsor Bridge has limited edge protection. When tired, or under the influence, this becomes a significant hazard and the risk of falling into the water increases. Following a number of tragic incidents BANES council (supported by BSU) have installed railings in the highest risk areas. Summer 2012 Summer 2013 If you plan to walk home this way after a night out please consider making the journey with friends.
