The canyon was walled across by ac dump of rolling stones, from twenty to thirtyfeet high. Up this they mounted by ladders, thenwalked over a mass of loose stones, until theystruck a triangular platform filling up the wholeglen. Walls of bare red rock rose shutting it in onthree sides.

Southville is an inner city ward of Bristol, England, situated on the south bank of the River Avon and northwest of Bedminster. Most of the area’s houses were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries either for workers in the Bristol coal mining industry or the tobacco factories of W. D. & H. O. Wills, homes of the eponymous "Wills Girls". The world headquarters of Imperial Tobacco, the world’s fourth largest international tobacco company, is still situated in the ward. Southville was also a centre for the tanning industry.

Dame Emily Park, on the site of the old Dean Lane coal pit head (closed December 1906), is celebrated for its popular skateboard park and the vivid graffiti, the latter regularly updated by a variety of artists on a weekly basis. Greville Smyth Park is the largest local park and is popular for sports, families and dog walkers. Bristol South swimming pool, a grade II listed building in the south of Dame Emily Park is currently undergoing a renovation to modernise its facilities. Southville Community Development Association (SCDA) is a local community-led organisation that supports many local projects and also runs the Southville Centre – a community centre, cafe, nursery, after school club and older peoples Monday club.
