Welcome to Newport, feeding the tourist gene and an incident on a bridge

I’m on the first domestic night out of the season, with The New Saints ahead of tomorrow’s game against Pontypridd United.

I’ve been to a football match in the city of Newport previously and also driven through, courtesy of an M4 closure diversion, but it’s the first time I’ve been here ‘properly’.

After I did an interview and we had our evening meal, I went for a walk to feed the tourist gene.

Way back in time, this was the very edge of the Roman Empire and a fort was built at Caerleon, just upstream on the River Usk that flows through Newport.
