Bristol Estate

The Steepest Hill

On the steepest hill in Brighton-behind the Regency splendour and famed landmarks that define this newly appointed city-sits the Bristol Estate.

Five hundred people,three hundred flats, most social, some now private.

Above, interwoven with plane trails beautifully defiling the sky, soar gulls-always calling, always watching.

Down below, dog-walkers, toddlers, joggers, pram-pushers, school children, bird feeding old ladies, teenagers tinkering with cars.

Food is served, anniversaries celebrated, jokes told, laughter and tears, sadness and madness.

But all the while the gulls keep flying through the sea fogs, blizzards, storms and the festival of light when the sun shines.
